Freedom Bill, 
Extra Budget 
WinApproval 

The Freedom Bill, passed in July, has 
aided the university in keeping and im- 
proving its professional staff, Provost 
McCune said yesterday, but he paid as 
much credit for staff improvement to a 
supplementary budget also approved this 
summer. 

McCune, noting that the Freedom Bill 
gave freedom only to the Board of Trus- 
tees, said its provisions, which allow the 
school to hire professional staff at high- 
er than minimum state salaries, have 
been used "sparingly" to keep three 
men otherwise enticed by offers of jobs 
with higher pay than what they would 
have gotten in pre-Freedom Bill days. 
Ten New Professors 

The provost pointed out that the sup- 
plementary budget provided for 10 new 
prufesdorships. That meant that as as- 
sociate professors are advanced to full 
professorships, room is left for the pro- 
motion of assistant profs and then in- 
structors. 

There were so many promotions, Mc- 
Cune said jovially, that the personnel 
office ran out of forms. 

Salaries Said Still Behind 

But, he warned, UM salaries still 
trail those of comparable schools, in- 
cluding the University of Connecticut. 
He called the boosting of academic sal- 
aries the big issue of the year. 

Some help, he said, might be forth- 
coming under the Barrington Plan, pro- 
posed by the Barrington Associates of 
New York, who have been surveying 
salary scales for the state. 

Proposed undar the Barrington Plan, 
Mr^^'iine said, are higher earnings and 
quicker step raises. 



Union Fee 
Said Forced 

In a letter to Student Senate president 
pro tem Lawrence Parish, President J. 
Paul Mather has cited three reasons he 
says have forced the collection of a $10 
Student Union fee from each student 
before the building is opened. 

First, the initial payment on the bond 
issues used to cover conKtruction costs 
fall due July 1. The Alumni Building 
Association does not have enough ready 
cash to meet the debt. 

Second, the SU director, who will be 
hired Iwforc Nov. 1, must be paid from 
student funds. 

Third, a clerk for the Union already 
has been hired and his salary must be 
paid for out of student fees. 

The clerk currently worka at RSO 
offices, but will move to the Union when 
it is finished. 

Completion dat.^ fnr the building has 
been variously pegged at just before 
Christmas or just after the start of 
second semesten

A committee of the General Court will open hearings 
Thursday morning in Boston to try to learn the "true" 
reason for the expulsion of the Tufts University chapter 
of Sigma Kappa sorority by its national.

Sorority Presidents 
Rules Unbiased 

All seven sorority presidents denied flatly Sunday 
night that their organizations have discriminatory clausi^-d. 

The New York Times of August 2 said that the Sigma 
Kappa national constitution says nothing of discrimina- 
tion. The chapters at Cornell and Tufts were ousted from 
the national sorority shortly after pledging Negroes. 

Marilyn Gross, president of Chi Omega, said here 
sorority had no clauses for bias in its constitution. 

Were there any such provisions in the ritual, she was 
asked. No, she replied, "that's what I meant when I said 
there were no clauses in the constitution." 

Would national object if you pledged a Negro? 

"I'm not talking about that," she answered. 

She also said she could "conceive" of Chi O pledging 
a Negro someday, but she said she did not know what the 
reaction of the Chi O national might be.

Sigma Kappa's Summer 



Say 




National Sigma Kappa Soror- 
ity expelled chapters at Tufts 
and Cornell Universities in Aug- 
ust after each had pledged two 
Negroes they planned to initiate 
this fall. 

National Sigma Kappa has no 
sections in its constitution bar- 
ring Negroes. 

Eac^h dropped chapter was told 
by mimeographed letter it had 
been ousted "for the good of the 
sorority as a whole." 

Thr Tuft^ case immediately 
spurred the Massachusetts Gen- 
eral Court to nrdti a study to 
determine the "true reason or 



basis" for the expulsion. 

The order also requested the 
study committee to recommend 
whether Sigma Kappa chapters 
ought to be banner at state 
schools.

M'Qn, UM Policy Urge 
Evolutionary Approach 
Against Discrimination 

by TOM PICARD 

Dean Helen Curtis said yesterday that no UM soror- 
ity constitutions contain discriminatory clauses. Dean 
Robert S. Hopkins Jr. said that some fraternities here 
do have restrictive provisions, but he declined to reveal 
the fraternities by name. 

Provost Shannon McCune, acting president during 
J. Paul Mather's visit to Japan for a discussion of techni- 
cal exchange, declared the university prohibits the estab- 
lishment of new fraternities with biased clauses and works 
to urge present frats with such rules to abolish them. 
The provost also said UM should not "fear" the hear- 
ings in Boston Thursday 
since "we stand pretty well 
in this whole field of dis- 
crimination." 

To Study Ouster Cause 

The hearings this week are an 
investigation by a committee of 
the state legislature to determine 
the cause of the expulsion of the 
Sigma Kappa chapter at Tufts 
University this summer after the 
chapter took two Negroes. 

The hearings are also aimed 
at recommending whether Sigma 
Kappa chapters should be pro- 
scribed from state schools. 

McCune said yesterday the uni- 
versity's evolutionary policy was 
written under the presidency of 
Ralph A, Van Meter some years 
ago by Dean Hopkins.

THE COLLEGIAN. TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 18. 1956 



Hi. Welcome to UMieland, Where Finals Begin January 14. 



GREEKS ACT... 

Official reaction to the investigation in 
Boston of discriminatory practices of fra- 
ternities and sororities has been swift. 

The administration and student leaders 
on this campus are to be lauded for their 
actions. Pan-Hellenic Council, acting on the 
advice of Dean Curtis, called for statements 
or actual copies of the clauses of each soror- 
ity on campus. Seven houses gave this in- 
formation to Miss Curtis. Pan-Hell has also 
made its meeting this afternoon open to the 
press. 

The Tnter-Fratemity Council president, 
Jordy Levy, has said that such statements 
have been presented to the Dean of Men over 
a period of years by each fraternity. IFC 
will also meet this afternoon. 

Discrimination is distasteful to all of 
us. We on this campus have been forward 
enough to avoid use of this practice. It is to 
be hoped that fraternities and sororities will 
demonstrate their distaste of discriminatory 
practices by full co-operation with the Deans 
and the Inter-Greek councils in this matter. 




Staff to be Sitting Ducks 



Memo to the Index 

The 1956 edition of the Index was to be 
bigger and better than ever. Perhaps the 
content was. The distribution system cer- 
tainly wasn't. 

A limited number of books were avail- 
able on the first t^vo days of distribution. 
This brought about the unhappy situation of 
many students waiting in line for hours, 
only to be told that the supply had run out 
when they finally reached the door. 

Many people had to resort to paying post- 
age for the yearbooks to be sent to them be- 
cause of the shortage. This was a great im- 
I)Osition to expect on the part of the staff. 
If it was a failure on their part, or on the 
printer's to produce the Index in time for 
distribution, it was assuredly their duty to 
finance the mailings. 

The senior supplement to the book fell 
short of expectation. It was not something 
which seniors will treasure as a full cover- 
age of their last few months on this campus. 

Please, editors - - improvement on these 
points for the '57 Index. 



The Collegian staflf is under 
fire. 

(Construction of a new ROTC 
rifle range adjoining the Colle- 
gian "Cave" in the basement of 
Mem Hall threatens to introduce 
a new occupational hazard for 
editors and reporters — shellshock. 

IxKaled where the old bowling 
alleys used to be, the new rifle 
range will replace the old range, 
which was torn down in March, 
1955, to make room for Machmer 
Hall. 

The university is required by 



law to provide a rifle range for 
ROTC students. The range will 
probably be used also by the 
pistol team. 

Having already accustomed 
themselves to the cacophony of 
combined band practices, piano 
concertos, bowling classes, and 
juke-box rock 'n roll, the "Cave" 
dwellers are expected to adjust 

quickly to the staccato cracking 
of 22*8 in their ears, and to learn 
to remain at their typewriters 
during even the heaviest firing. 



Bouquets . . . 

We extend a long ann to pat the sopho- 
more honor societies on the back for their 
actions during freshman week, and to shake 
the hand of WMUA for its part in the ac- 
tivities. 

Members of the Maroon Key and Scrolls 
have this year shown unprecedented co-oper- 
ation within the organizations. They have 
worked together solidly as one team, rather 
than as two separate groups. 

The freshman class has been organized 
as never before. We can hardly recall an- 
other year when beanies and bibs have been 
so predominant. The enthusiasm is evident 
everywhere, and we feel it is largely due to 
the example and actions of these groups. 

May the zeal continue throughout the 
university life of this class, and may the fol- 
lowing honor societies take the paths cleared 
by the Keys and Scrolls of this year. 

Roses to Bob Betz and to Yorkette Solo- 
mon, Presidents of these organizations, for 
their tremendous work. 

Further praise to WMUA for its service 
to the Inter-dorm dances of Saturday eve- 
ning. The campus station provided music 
piped into the halls, and representatives in 
each dorm reported requests directly to the 
program director. 



Spontaneous Frosh Rallies 
Held by Class of '60 

by MARCIA WINEGARD 

The Class of 1960 has hit the campus with a spontaneous and 
united spirit to gladden and surprise the hearts of our most cynical 
and sophisticated upperclassmen. 

During the past week, there have been mass rallies between the 
freshman dorms that were thrilling simply because they were impul- 
sive voluntary movements of the frosh, and not gatherings incited 
and promoted by the Maroon Key and Scrolls. 

The two sophomore honor groups did get the class off to a fine 
start by quickly distributing bibs and beanies to the freshmen, and 
encouraging them to wear them with enthusiasm. But the frosh took 
it from there. 

Friday night, they came into their own with a bang by staging 
a demonstration that endeared them to the dorm resident heads and 
upperclassmen fortunate enough to view the proceedings. 

Freshmen from every dorm gathered in front of the Commons 
in the early evening. They equalled about half of the class of '60. 
For almost three and one half hours, until the freshman women's 
curfew, they had a wonderful time getting acquainted. 

At first, the dorms held their own separate caucuses. They in- 
dividually extolltxi their own virtues and Saurday night socials. In 
the midst of their loud pep cheers and campaign speeches, one Thatch- 
erite climbed a lamp pole to make a speech, and received an enthusi- 
astic ovation from the crowd below. 

Soon, however, the dorms decided to join forces, and turned the 
rally into a mass class eflFort. The frosh cheered for the dorms and 
the university, danced the Bunny Hop and Hokey Pokey, sang a fine 
repertoire of university and popular songs, and generally got along 
as if they'd known each other all their lives. 

Saturday afternoon, Thatcher and Ivewis held a joint meeting 
on the Quad lawn to discuss their evening dances. This iinusual co- 
operation between usually competitive dorms surprised both the fac- 
ulty residents and tlie Maroon Key. It was strictly a frosh idea. 

Baker, however, was not to be outdone, Saturday night the Baker 
men stormed down the hill in the pouring rain, singing an original 
Baker pep song, to cheer for the girls' dorms and escort the residents 
to the hill dances. 

The dorm socialn jirovcd very successful, both on and below the 
hill. In Lewis, the crowd was highly entertained hy a set of guitar- 
playing, singing twin.% a fro.-^h Elvis Presley, and a dialect humorist. 

From the actions of the Class of 1060 this past wcok, it is evi- 
dent that iuMtlitT the extonsivi* freshman testing j>r<>jrram nor the 
rain could sqiHli-h tin- onthusia-m an<l vitality the frosh posst^ss. May 
they keep tlu'sc charartorisLics throughout this and their next three 
years on campu.s. 



Good Year Ahead 

The freshmen, not here a week, seem to feel that 
UMass is their home already. The Maroon Key and 
the Scrolls are favorably impressed with the united 
spirit of this class. A few comments from the Key 
and the Scrolls about freshmen follow, accompanied 
by some comments by the frosh themselves on the 
campus as a whole. 

Bob Dallmeyer, Maroon Key — "Great sports; they 
are a bit green, but they've been around; they've 
got what it takes to make a good class." 

Betty Grimm, Scroll — "They are fresh and invigor- 
ating; they'll add the zest we need if they keep 
up this v«ipirit." 

John Kominski, Maroon Key — "They have a lot of 
spirit, also a lot of good looking girls; the class 
on the whole seems intellectual." 

Nancy Wilkinson, Scroll — ^"This class is bubbling 
over with enthusiasm; they mix well among 
themselves and seem to b<; very adult." 
Freshman Remarks 

Marilyn Rourke, Crabtree — "The place is hilarious." 

Henry Rastillis, Commuter — "I think it's great. 
What else can you say?" 

Gussie Fishel, Commuter — "The kids are fabulous. 

You feel so at home when you get here. You're 

smack in the middle of everything." 
Victor Mathurin, Thatcher— "I hadn't expected half 

of what I've found. They'll have a heck of a time 

getting me out of here." 



In Japan 

Mather Helps Tie 
U.S. — Japan Knot 

Another link in the chain of friendship 
between this school and Japan is being 
welded this month, as President Mather 
travels to a Japanese university to commem- 
orate its founding by a former UMass pres- 
ident. 

Reaching its 80th birthday is Hokkaido Univer- 
sity, founded in 1876 by William S. Clark, third 
president here (1867-78). 

But Mather's trip is not only ceremonial; he, 
Dale H. Sieling, dean of the college of agriculture, 
and John W. Zahradnik, assistant research profes- 
sor of agricultural engineering, will discuss a pro- 
posed exchange program of technical advice and 
assistance in agriculture between Hokkaido and 
UMass. 

Clark's Impression 

UM's connections with Japan have been close, 
especially in the 19th century after Clark started 
Hokkaido U and left his devoted Nippon students 
with a phrase promptly adopted by the Japanese 
school: "Boys," he said as he rode away from the 
college, "be ambitious." 

His impression on the Japanese college has been 
indelible; even now many Japanese visit Amherst, 
drawn here by Clark's reputation. They often take 
pictures of Clark's grave (in the Old West Ceme- 
tery opposite the old Amherst High School) and of 
Clark HalL 

McCune's Teaching 
After Clark, several UM alumni taught at Hok- 
kaido. 

Provost Shannon McCune, acting president in 
Mather's absence, also has connections with the Far 
East and Japan. Bom in Korea, and an exi>ert on 
Oriental geography, McCune was Fulbright visiting 
professor in the Institute of Geography at the Uni- 
versity of Tokyo in 1953-54. 

Mather and his cohorts left Sept. 9 for Washing- 
ton for a conference with ofllcials of the Interna- 
tional Cooperation Association, which has a contract 
with UM for a progrim of cultural and technical 
interchange. 

ICA carries out many similar projects through 
American and foreign universities. 

Mather will be gone for about 40 days, making 
his return to campus fall near the middle or end of 
October. McCune will ser/e as president under the 
term' of a niling by the Board of Trustees two days 
before Mather's departxire, on Sept. 7.

they arrive on campus. 

Heavy Schedule This Year 

In the next few weeks, Mortar 
Board and Adelphia, the senior 
men's honor group, will jointly 
conduct discussions in the men's 
and women's freshman dorms, to 
introduce the frosh to the many 
different facets of campus life. 

The two societies also sponsor 
pep rallies and dances for the 
university, and usher at major 
convocations. The popular annual 
Campus Varieties show is an- 
other Mortar Board-Adelphia 



project. 

The number one objective of 
Mortar Boaiti tliis year is the 
stimulation of intellectuality on 
the campus. Last spring the 
j^roup sponsored an Arts" Festi- 
val, and plans to repeat it this 
year. 

A large winter project for 
them now is planning, with Adel- 
phia, the Student Senate, and the 
International Weekend Commit- 
tee, the International Weekend 
held annually on campus. 

The National Society of Mor-

are sporting black and gold em- 
blems on their white jackets. 

These emblems symbolize the 
National Women's honor society 
of Mortar Board, only a year old, 
but preceded for many years by 
the locally-organized Isogon. 



From five to twenty junior

AMHERST 



By the CoUegian's B«ae*rch-and-AB«l8t«nce SUff , 

Sumner Kaplan's bill in the General Court has aimed 
a searchlight at whatever fraternity or sorority discrimin- 
ation may exist at this university. Two factors, one depen- 
dent on the other, have made it impossible for any campus 
group to think that it could localize the hearings, which 
start Thursday, to the Tufts University campus and the 
State House hearing rooms. /•* •/ 

First, the bill creating the investigatory committee sug- 
gests that the state government might think about pro- 
scribing Sigma Kappa chapters from state-supported in&ti- 
stutions. Since teachers colleges lack sororities, "state-sup- 
ported institutions" would mean UM. So should the Boston 
press or the CoUegmn treat the hearing as a purely Tufts- 
Sigma Kappa matter, the papers would be avoiding an im- 
portant, if to many a distasteful, part of the investigation. 

The second factor which militates against a localization 
of the focus of the hearing is the flamboyance of the Boston 
press, which students here may infer from the coverage 
of the panty raid of December, 1955. And discrimination 
is a circulation builder. 

Within each consideration are several subfactors which 
indicate possible developments of the hearings, as well as 
reasons for expecting thorough press coverage. 

To begin with, this is a state school in a state with a 
traditional^ record of public and private protest against 
slavery and racial bias. Massachusetts was a hotbed of 
abolitionism before the Civil War, and as recently as 1949, 
its legislature passed a law forbidding colleges in the state 
from using race, religion, creed or national origin of apply- 
ing students as criteria for accepting or rejecting students. 

More immediately, this is an election year, and without 
doubt, state politicians will view the hearing and any pos- 
sible subsequent action as a battlefield to prove their stature 
as warriors against prejudice. 

And, coincidentally, this happens at the birth of a 
school year marked with the anti-integration struggles in 
the South, something which has increased the news value 
of discussions about discrimination and had made both 
press and public increasingly sensitive to it. 

Out of all this — the state traditions, the tendency of 
the Boston press to be inflammatory, the consciousness of 
prejudice because of current integration tensions — emerges 
a pattern which indicates that Sigma Kappa is in for a 
difficult time. 

It will be so difficult, indeed, that most everyone will 
forget the most important fact so far: that it is NOT a 
fact that the chapters at Tufts and Cornell Universities 
were expelled from national Sigma Kappa BECAUSE they 
pledged Negroes. 

The national has not said that this was the reason, and 
some Sigma Ivappa alumnae have claimed that the ousters 
came because the two were chapters weak both financially 
and academically. Also, should the sisters of the two 
ousted houses maintain they were bounced because they 
took Negroes, it would be fair to reply that such charges 
might be rationalizations designed to gain public sympathy 
for two chapters that actually had been derelict in paying 
duos and keeping up to certain scholastic requirements, 
but were too embarrassed to admit it.

SILENCE AT SIGMA KAPPA 



National Front All Quiet As 
Chapters Seek Explanation 



For almost seven weeks na- 
tional Sigma Kappa headquarters 
has maintained a stout silence to 
requests for elucidation of its 
"for the good of sorority as a 
whole" statement. 

The statement was made in 
mimeographed letters which in- 
formed the members of the Tufts 
and Comell chapters that their 
charters were being withdrawn. 
No other reason for the twin 
ouster was given at that time, 
the end of July. 

Both the administration at 
Comell and the Sigma Kappa 
chapter there have since tried to 
contact the national headquartere 
of the sorority. 

No Word From National 

According to Miss Thelma 
Hammond, president of the house 
on the Comell campus, the chap- 
ter has attempted to find out a 
more definite cause for the ex- 
pulsion and terms to be met in 
order to be reinstated. No fur- 
ther word Was come from nation- 
al headquarters, Miss Hammond 
said. 

The administration. Miss Ham- 
mond said last night, "received 
a cold letter which said nothing." 

Dr. Katliarine R. Jeffers, dean 



by RICHARD MILLER 

of women at Tufts, said that no 
further word has reached that 
campus more fully explaining the 
expulsion, although attempts 
have been made to contact na- 
tional Sigma Kappa. 

The national headquarters, 
called yesterday morning by the 
Collegian, had no comment to 
make on the matter. 

National headquarters said, 
"We have no comment," when 
asked if anyone there had heard 
from the UM chapter of the so- 
rority. 

Sigma Kappa Lacks Clause 

A UM Sigma Kappa alumna 
said she thought both Tufts and 
CorneU chapters had had recent 
financial difficulties, being in ar- 
rears in national dues. She also 
thought failure to fulfill academ- 
ic standards might be a possible 
reason for the expulsions. She 
noted the lack of a constitutional 
clause barring the initiation of 
Negroes into Sigma Kappa. 

Dean Jeffers said that three 
years ago the Tufts chapter was 
in the red, but had improved so 
that two years ago they were in 
the black, and last year were 
even better. Their academic 
standing. Dr. Jeffers maintained, 



"is satisfactory, in that it is 
above the all-Jackson (women's 
branch of Tufts) average." 

Money, Marks OK 

The financial situation of the 
Comell chapter is very good, de- 
clared Miss Hammond, who said 
that academically the chapter 
was "good." 

Just after Sigma Kappa's sum- 
mer convention ended, the chief 
delegate of the Comell chapter 
was asked to talk to a national 
officer. Miss Hammond said, 
about the pledging of two Negro 
girls. Miss Hammond said that 
"no warning was given at that 
time." 

Dean Jeffers said that as far 
as she knew, the Tufts chapter 
had received no warning prior to 
the ouster. 

"Grilled" On Pledging 

The New York Times of Aug. 2 
reported that Mrs. Cecelia Van 
Auken, alumna advisor of the 
Tufts Sigma Kappa chapter, said 
that a Tufts delegate had been 
"grilled" at the national conven- 
tion about the chapter's reasons 
for pledging two Negro girls. 

Yesterday the girls at both 
Tufts and Comell were returning 
to school for the fall semester.

Press Conference Quotes 

Provost McCune and Deans Curtis and Hopkins met 
with The Collegian staff yesterday for the annual fall press 
conference. What follows are quotations from the confer- 
ence as culled from a tape recording. Marcia Winegard, a 
Sigma Delta Tau, Mortarboard, and vice president pro-tem 
of the Senate, asks: 



"Do you find that the local 
attitude perhaps is good 

(about discrimination), but that 
the national pressure sometime 
outweighs the local ..." 

"McCune broke in: "I don't 
see much in the national pres- 



sure***." 

Dean Curtis then noted that 
girls often join sororities because 
they find the girls good compan- 
ions "without stopping to find 
out really very much about the 
organization and its policies and 
particularly about the question 
how much control is lodged in the 
local chapter and how much con- 
trol exists in the national. 

"This is something that many 
sorority officers don't even know 
***And I think the sororities 
have a responsibility here in per- 
haps doing a better job in inter- 
preting***its relationship to its 
national needs***. 

"***I certainly think the local 
group has a right to know what 
its national policies are and how 
decisions are made. 

"That, I think, for instance in 
the Sigma Kappa incident is the 
thing that has surprised people 
because they thought they had a 
constitution that permitted a lo- 
cal to pledge whom they pleased. 



"That's why some people think, 
well, it may be other reasons that 
the chapter was suspended." 

Later came this exchange be- 
tween Managing Editor Sam 
Kaplan and Dean Hopkins: 

Kaplan: "Do any of our frater- 
nities have discriminatory claus- 



es 



fn 



Hopkins: "Yes, some of them 
do. I don't remember which ones 
off hand." 

Kaplan: "Is this information 
available to the press ? Which 
ones?" 

Hopkins: "I told them that 
when they turned them into me 
that I would treat this in con- 
fidence, because I felt it was a 
matter between me as an officer 
responsible for fraternity admin- 
istration and themselves, and I 
prefer to keep it that way***un- 
til they tell me that I may re- 
lease it. If they say go ahead, 
why then I shall do so." 

Kaplan: "Could you tell us ap- 
proximately how many of- our 
fraternities have discrimina . . ." 

Hopkins: "I don't know***now 
because. . ." 

McCune then broke in with a 
description of how clauses can 
be reworded so that it becomes 
nearly impossible to determine if 
they are discriminatoi-y. 



Sorority Heads Disclaim 
Restrictive Provisions 



(Continued from page 1) 



Doris Rathbun, president of 
Phi Delta Nu, an independent 
local, said, "We do not intend to 
go national until we find a na- 
tional who will accept us as we 
are . . . until we find one with no 
restrictive clauses. 

"We have written to a few na- 
tionals to find out how they feel 
but no application has been 
made." 

Barbara Axt, Kappa Kappa 



Gamma president, said that she 
was turning in a statement which 
quotes the membership clauses. 

She also said that all sororities 
had turned in their constitutions 
to RSO last spring. 

None nf the sororities were in 
opposition to the action of the 
Dean of Women in calling for 
statements about membership 
clauses.

Goodbye, 5^ 
Milk — UMies 
Overtax Cows 

Nickel milk, long one of 
UM's major financial attrac- 
tions, is no more. 

A. J. Kyan, manager of the 
C-store, said yesterday that 
the school dairy, faced with 
higher enrolment, could no 
longer provide enough milk for 
both Dining Hall and coffee 
house systems. 

That means, said Ryan, that 
milk will have to be bought 
from outside producers. The 
cost of obtaining it from prof- 
it-making companies will force 
the local cost per bottle to 
10 cents. 

The school dairy, now being 
fixed, has in the past produced 
enough milk for both systems, 
but increasing enrolment has 
drained plant production solely 
into the Dining Halls. 

Observers see an increase in 
the sale of black (five cent) 
coffee as a cheap replacement 
for more expensive milk. 

And gone will be the gam- 
bit of coffee drinkers who paid 
five cents for one bottle of 
milk to turn their black drink 
into regular or half-and-half.

Redmen to go Against AIC 
In 1956 Curtain Raiser 



•^riTie^mT^^s 



■ ■< 



If the injury jinx does not 
strike too hard and too often, thle 
UMass football team may be 
headed for its most successful 
season in years. The 1956 Red- 
men have size, speed, and spirit 
but lack depth. 

The backfield seems to be a 
little stronger than the line, with 
an all veteran quartet returning 
and a number of capable reserves 
to back them up* 

Tom's Third Year 

Tom Whalen will be calling 
signals again and operating un- 
der the center for the third 
straight year. For two years, 
Tom has lead the Yankee Con- 
ference in punting and is a stel- 
lar defensive safety man- Three 
times in his college career, he 
has tossed last period aerials to 
win games. 

Big Roger Barous is back to 
do the line plunging. The 185 lb. 
power runner can really smash 
into a forward wall and has the 
speed to go all the way. He can 
also be used effectively as a pass 
receiver as he proved in the 
Brandies game when he galloped 
77 yards with a Whalen toss. 
Mellen Fastest Man 

Halfbacks Charlie Mellen and 
Dick Wright are two of New 
England's finest. Mellen is a gen- 
uine triple threat; he can run 
(fastest man on the squad), pass, 
and kick extra points and even 
field goals. Last fall he led the 
team in scoring. 

Dick Wright is a potential all- 
conference halfback. The 180 lb. 
senior has twice been the lead- 
ing ground gainer on the team. 



He is almost impossible to stop 
on dive plays from the Split T 
and has run 90 plus yards more 
than once. The only thing that 
might stop him is a bad knee 
which was operated on last sum- 
mer. 

Cieri May Start 

Coach O'Rourke is high on 
John Cieri, a senior halfback. A 
slashing runner and sturdy de- 
fensive player, the retired grind- 
er merchant might hustle his 
way into the starting lineup. Ron- 
nie Blume is a vastly improved 
QB over 1955, and Bob DeValle, 
a converted end, could surprise at 
halfback should Wright's knee 
fail to hold up. 

Dick Bergquist seemed to be 
set as Barous's sub until Jack 
Noble went into the Amherst 
scrimmage. The husky senior was 
impressive in an unfamiliar role 
and could see plenty of action if 
Coach O'Rourke decides to make 
the switch permanent. Bill Max- 
well needs more experience at 
quarterback. Fred losue and Doc 
Enos are two swift but small 
halfbacks. 

"Inch" Outstanding 

The Redmen line, spearheaded 
by co-captains Dave Ingram and 
Jim Dolan, is tough but thin. Big 
"Inch" is an outstanding flank- 
man both on offense and defense. 
Dave is fast and tricky and has 
the sticky pair of hands that a 
goo<l end should have. He should 
be the prime target in any UMass 
attack. 

Jim Dolan is a proven per- 
former. He was an All New Eng- 
land selection as a guard last 



season. Jim is e<iually effective 
as a middle man or as a line- 
backer. Small at 170 pounds, he 
makes up for his lack of size 
with spirit and savvy. 

Coach Henry Woronicz has a 
small but talented end squad. 
John O'Keefe and Win MacDon- 
ald are scrapping for the start- 
ing right end berth, but Ken 
(Mad Dog) MacRae, Bob Fer- 
riani, and Bob Moynihan are not 
far behind them. 

Tinker Returiui 

The tackle slot has been 
strengthened by the return of 
Bill (Tinker) Connolly from the 

ATTENTION ALL FRESHMEN

Coach Woronicz stressed 
that no experience is neces- 
sary to try out for the team. 

Marines. Tinky started for the 
Camp Lejeune team and has been 
a standout in every scrimmage. 
Frank Spriggs and Art Miller 
are battling for the other start- 
ing berth. 

There is a three way race for 
the other guard slot left vacant 
by the injury to Bill Goodwin. 
Bob Sampson could edge out Al 
Bedrosian and Phil Berardi on 
his superior experience. 

UMass seems set at center 
with the brilliant but brittle Buzz 
Allen back for another year.

Not so many years ago, a very maladjusted man founded a cor 
rupt dynasty deep in the heart of Dixie. This regime was founded on 
the principles of ignorance and bigotry, and although this dictator 
was assassinated some time ago by one of the people he sought to 
deceive, his heirs ascended to the seat of power and have carried out 
the administration of his odious policies even in the supposedly en- 
lightened southland of the present. 

I refer of course to the state of Louisiana, and the recent laiws 
that have been passed in its state legislature by men that by all stand- 
ards are etlucated and mature enough to make intelligent decisions. 
It becomes apparent, however, that they are not able to reach these 
aforementioned decisions when one considers the recent "Sugar Bowl" 
ruling. For those who are unaware of this new masterpiece of dis- 
crimination engineered by the stagnant dung heap that is the legacy 
of Huey Long, the Louisiana legislature passed a law this past simi- 
mer forbidding Negroes and Whites to compete together in any ath- 
letic contest in the state. On a national scale, this ruling hits direct- 
ly at the largest eastern post season athletic jamboree, the Sugar 
Bowl. Both in ftK>tRall and in 
basketball, the pinnacle of suc- 
cess for a college is to be invit- 
ed to compete in this post-season 
classic. Recently, the Sugar Bowl 
basketball tournament has be- 
come the big test for the hoop 
giants of the country, and this 
penurious ruling has thro'WTi the 
future of the tournament into 
chaos, for some of the vcr>' 
brightest stars in the basketball 
firmament are Negroes. 

Now it is conceivable that such 
a law could be i>assed in the 
heart of the south where the 
roots of race prejudice grow 
deep, if only for the reason of the 
deep roots that require great and 
prolonged effort to be removed. 
But it is expected that many — in 
fact all — of the schools that us- 
ually attend this tournament 
would protest the ruling. This 
Was happened. Several basketball 
jwwers, led by Notre Dame, have 
announced their intention to boy- 
cott the Sugar Bowl and have 
urged other schools in the coun- 
try to follow their lead. This ac- 
tion by the schools who follow 
their moral obligations is admir- 
able, but what inspires this tirade 
is the fact that the organization 
that sanctions and oversees the

Injury Jinx Strikes; 
4 Lost to Thin Squad 



NCAA... 




FRANCIS 

Even before the opening 
whistle of the 1956 football sea- 
son, the injurj,- jinx has swooi>.h1 
down on the UMass squad. Both 
soph guard Bill Goodwin and 
junior back Dick Thompson are 
lost for the season with broken 
legs, and tackle Fran Springs 
and halfback Dick Wrij^ht are 
out with knee injuries, Spriggs 
for at least three weeks, and 
Wright for an undetermined 
length of time. 

The loss of Goodwin and 
Spriggs is a serious blow to the 
already thin Redman line. Coach 
Charlie O'Rourke had both slated 
as starters for the coming cam- 
paign, Goodwin was a standout 
guard for both Marblehead and 
Gushing Academy before coming 
here, and Spriggs was a stalwart 
of last year's Redman forward 



SPRIGGS 

wall. 

The loss of backs Wright and 
Thompson also deals the Umie 
football aspirations a bad blow. 
Wright is well known to UMasa 
fans as a speedy halfback, and 
Coach O'Rourke had him paired 
this season with Charley Mellen 
as the Redmen's twin threat on 
offense. Thompson is a slippery 
limner and an excellent pass re- 
ceiver. He was slated to fill in 
at both halfback and fullback 
this season. Thompson will be 
missed even more by basketball 
coach Bob Curran. 

Of this injury jinx that has 
started off plaguing the Redmen 
early. Coach O'Rourke had this 
to say, "With the squad lacking 
i-n depth as it is, we've got to 
keep them healthy or we're dead 
ducks." 



(Continued from page 6) 
domain of intercollegiate athlet- 
ics, namely the N.CjV.A., has re- 
mained njute on the topic. 

The president of this omni- 
potent commission, "Pop" Hous- 
ton, resides near the fair city of 
Boston at Tufts, and after sev- 
eral months of remaining as deaf 
as the proverbial dormouse to 
the threats and cajolements of 
Hub sportswriters to take a stand 
on the issue he has finally bowed 
to the pressure of public opinion 
and mouLhcd « piece of double- 
talk worthy of Casey Stengel. He 
referred to "our commission on 
special events" and " — issue is 
not within our province", and 
after closely scanning the state- 
ment and separating the wheat 
from the chaff one may see that 
he has effectively observed the 
hallowed tradition of "passing the 
buck." 

Certainly an organization of 
the stature of the NCAA should 
not be allowed to duck an issue 
as vitally important as this one, 
and, if they continue to play the 
waiting game, the schools of the 
country should take matters into 
their own hands and repudiate 
the leadership of such a weak 
sister outfit and form a new 
commission to handle the reins of 
leadership in intercollegiate ath- 
letics, one that will have the 
guts and the pride to act con- 
clusively when issues such as the 
present one arise.

A banner year for intramurals 
seems to be in the offing as the 
approach of mural competition 
draws closer. 

Early reports on the imminent 
football season indicated that 
many of the fraternity teams are 
already holding locked door skull 
sessions aaid strategy meetings. 
Several of the fraternity outfits 
loom as contenders for the crown 
in that league this season. 

Theta Chi, the perennial pow- 
erhouse, again promises to field a 
team that will have to be highly 
regaided by their opponents. 

Sig Ep is expected to suffer 
somewhat from the loss of their 
top ace in three sports, Ben 
Getchell, but still must be re- 
spected as a threat for the chara- 
pionkhip. 

The team that figures to pre- 
sent one of the best shows of 
strength is SAE. They have a 
rugged line spearheaded by last 



year's all-star, Tony "The Med- 
iterranean Tiger" Scalzi. They 
also will have a well coordinated 
outfit under the tutorship of 
coach Larry "Old Fox" Murray. 

The Dorm League will be much 
improved this year mainly bo- 
cause of the Intramural Coun- 
cil's ruling that no freshmen will 
be eligible to compete in the Fra- 
ternity League. Another result of 
this ruling should be that, in the 
playoffs, the freshman dorma 
will be strong enough to really 
pose a threat to the fraternity 
champs for the mural title. 

This year the title has even 
more significance than in the 
past, because the cliamps will 
face the mural champs of UNH 
in a mural bowl game that will 
see its birth this season. The 
game will be played in conjunc- 
tion with the Redmen-Wildcat tilt 
and will be an annual home and 
away affair.

Laziness, and diabolic laz- 
iness at that, has triumphed 
again over efficiency. Man, for 
a while, has beaten machine. 

Last spring a junior who 
spent most of his class hours 
in bed looked ahead with a- 
larm to the fall, when he would 
have to take six courses if he 
was to graduate in June. 

So, not cherishing the 
thought of a class schedule 
loaded with 18 hours — he was 

a liberal artist he planned 

for the day when he would 
ease his way through registra- 
tion with two of his courses 
scheduled for the same hour. 

Never minding the pluper- 
fect mind of the IBM, the stu- 
dent, now a senior, casually 
signed up for two courses at 
11 a.m. Monday - Wednesday -

FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 21, 1956 



Convo Opens 
Academic Yr 

"We must take up the threads which 
hold the fabric of the civilization of to- 
morrow. We must take into hand the 
privileges we possess with reverence. 
Only if we have reverence may we take 
advantage of our opportunities," Harold 
C. Case, 5th president of Boston Uni- 
versity, pointed out in his address to 
the opening convocation. 
Young America Is Greatly Endowed 
Case stated that the young people of 
America possess more privileges and op- 
portunities than any other people. These 




by Gliddan 
PROVOST McCUNE 

must not be taken for granted. They are 
God-given and should always be treated 
with reverence. 

Discipline Is Important 

Secondly he said that we must "re- 
examine the discipline by which we live." 
All other things should take second 
place to the desire to learn. Students 
must recognize the responsibilities which 
are handed out individually. 

Loyalty to great traditions was Case's 
third point. Nations go down when they 
forget their heritage. The leaders of to- 
morrow must take traditions into mind, 
"The spirit of democracy is to believe 
people, who have the capacity and not 
the way, into greatness." 

Important Decisions Are Ahead 

He concluded his address by remind- 
ing students that they are beginning a 
new and important semester. The deci- 
sions they make now could be decisions 
which would influence their entire lives. 
Students should deride what they want 
to do with their lives and begin to do 
something about it. 

Mr. Case has received many citations, 
among them the 1954 award "for distin- 
guialied service in the field of human re- 
lations" by the National Conference of 
Christians and Jews. He has been a 
delegate to two world conferences, U.S. 
representative to the Adult Education 
Conference in England, 1929, and U.S. 
leader to the World Christian Youth 
Conference, Norway, 1947. 



Absentee Ballots 
Will Be AvaUable 

An Absentee Voting committee aided 
by the Senate has printed postcard ap- 
plications which were available at reg- 
istration and which still may be obtained 
from the R.S.O. office in East Experi- 
ment Station. 

The committee hopes to make avail- 
able the services of a Notary Public in 
the weeks immediately prior to election 
day, since the placing of the absentee 
ballot in its special return envelope 
must be witnessed by a Notary or town 
clerk. 

Students who are not registered voters 
should inquire of the town clerk in their 
home communities in order tc^ find out 
the hours of registration. 

Any student having questions al>out 
absent eo voting or registration should 
contact Kichanl J. Keogh, 215 Greenough 
House.

AIC Rally And Frosh Sing 
WiU Highlight The Weekend 

by BARBARA TATHAM 



M.I.T. Dean For Retaining National Aifiliations; 
Three Amherst Fraternities Forced To Go Local 

by SHEILA CLOUGH 

"It is unfair to penalize local (sorority or fraternity) 
chapters for action taken by the national organization 
when the locals are doing all that is possible to amend dis- 
criminatory clauses *** at the University of Massachu- 
setts our students are the best in the nation on this 
matter." 



The well-attended registration 
dance ushered in the social activ- 
ities of the university year Tues- 
day evening. Two other events 
scheduled for this weekend should 
prove as successful. 

Parade Precedes Rally 

The first football rally of the 
season will be held Friday eve- 
ning at 7 p.m. A parade, led by 
the Preclsionettes and cheerlead- 
ers, will begin at Butterfield and 
continue down Butterfield hill, 
by Femald, past Lewis and 
Thatcher, and by the Women's 
Quad where it will proceed along 
Ellis drive to the Alumni Field. 

The rally program offers every- 
one the chance to get acquainted 
with the team, coaches, band, the 
Preclsionettes, and the cheerlead- 
ers. Provost McCune will be on 
hand to inaugurate the new sea- 
son. 

Bonfire And Dance Are 
Highlights 

The climax of the rally will 



come with a spectacular bonfire. 
Immediately following the rally 
a dance will be held in the Cage. 

The frosh will again have a 
chance to show their spirit and 
talent at the Inter-dorm Sing 
Competition to be held Saturday 
evening. The freshman dorma 
have been rehearsing four uni- 
versity songs during the week, 
but only one song will be chosen 
for each dorm to sing Saturday. 
After each song, freshmen who 
auditioned with the Revelers and 
were chosen to perform at the 
sing, will have the opportunity 
to show their talents. 
Mrs. Mather Will Present Awards 

At the close of the sing the 
^\'inners in both the talent and 
song division will be announced, 
and the awards in the forms of 
plaques will be presented by 
M-'s. Mather. 

The judges for the Sing will 
be the presidents of the sopho- 
more, junoir. and senior classes. 




James W. Burke, Secretary of 
the university, made the above 
statement to the committee of the 
General Court at a hearing in 
the State House at Boston yes- 
terday. He added that there is 
no discrimiTiation in Sigma Kap- 
pa or any other sorority or fra- 
ternity on the University cam- 
pus. 

The hearing was held in an 
attempt to discover any reasons 
other than discrimination for the 
expulsion of the Tufts Univer- 
sity chapter of Sigma Kappa so- 
rority which had previously 
pledged two Negroes. 

Burke's statements were made 
in reply to the second aim of the 
hearing, to determine whether 
Sigma Kappa chapters should be 
banned at state schools. 

Deadline Coiusidered 

The special committee had con- 
6idei*ed legislative action to set 
a deadline within which all so- 
rorities and fraternities at state 
supported schools would either 
have to eliminate discrimination 
in their constitutions or be forced 
to go local. 

Thomas Rule, Dean of M.I.T., 
stated that it would be more ad- 
vantageous for the students to 
retain their national affiliations 
than to separate into locals. He 
added that at M.I.T. there is an 
intcr-fraternity conference or- 
ganized in 1952, working to elim- 
inate discrimination clauses. 

Ten Tacit At MIT 

At the Instit'ite there are pre- 
sently ten fraternities which re- 
main "tacit" about their clauses 
and seventeen which have no re- 
maining reetrictioais whatsoever. 

Richard Goodwin, counsel for 
the committee and moderator of 
the hearing, replied that a large 
number of the sororities and fra- 
ternities have many chapters in 
the south. He added that an 
lunendment to most of the char- 
ters requires a % vote, and that 
he did not think the northern 
rhafjters could swing this vote to 
favor the amendment of discrim- 



inatory clauses. 

Deadline At Amherst 

Goodwin presented to the hear- 
ing a letter from Arthur Daven- 
port, the Secretary of the House 
Management Commission at Am- 
herst College, stating that in 
1946 a deadline was set within 
which the fraternities had to 
eliminate discrimination or dis- 
sociate from the national. 

Three fraternities have since 
been forced to separate from 
their nationals. Phi Delta Theta, 
Tau Delta Tau and Phi Alpha 
Psi, have become Phi Delta Sig- 
ma, Kappa Theta, and Phi Kap- 
pa Psi respectively. The remain- 
ing ten fraternities have no dis- 
criminatory clauses, or if so are 
not held to them by their na- 
tional. 

UConn, NYU Affected 

Dartmouth also has set such 
a deadline. Several state sup- 
ported universities have followed 
a similar course of action, among 
them New York University and 
the University of Connecticut. 

The deans pi-esent at the hear- 
ing, however, concluded that the 
best solution lay in democratic 
action. They felt that the stu- 
dents can and will take action 
for themselves against discrim- 
ination. 

SK Still Silent 
Katherine Jeffers, Dean of 
Jackson College, said that she 
had phoned Sigma Kappa's sec- 
retary-treasurer to inquire furth- 
er on the Tufts ouster. The secre- 
tary, she added, said she would 
pass on the inquiry. "I have had 
dead silence ever since," Miss 
Jeffers said. 

She said that such silence 
only strengthened in her mind 
the conviction that discrimina- 
tion was the basis of the 
expulsion. Miss Jeffers then 
stated that she has barred Sigma 
Kappa from the Tufts-Jackson 
campus. Professor Clarence 
Houston also of Tufts accom- 
panied Miss Jeffers and stated 
that he agreed with and sup- 
ported all her statements. 



Route of Friday night's parade which will begin at Butterfield 
and proceed to Alumni Field where the first football rally of the 
Mason wUI be held. 



Enrolment Hits Record 
As 1070 Frosh Register 

The university has entered its 89th academic year with a reconi 
enrolment, but the exact count will be unknown imtil a thorough 
chwk is made, the registrar's office said. 

A presemester estimate has pegged enrolment at 4405, includ 
ing 1070 fpeshmcn. Handbook <listribution and crov.ded frosh dorms 
have indicated a y««rling ol{*ss nearer 1200. 

Tho graduate school has expected 325 and Stockbridge School 
of Agriculture has anticij^ted 330. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 21, 1956 



Need Local Action 
To Stir Nationals 

For the second time within the past de- 
cade, the issue of discrimination in member- 
ship selection by sororities and fraternities 
has been projected under a bright campus 
spotlight. 

In Provost McCune's words, the solution 
to the problem is "a gradual sort of thing." 
The administration can not say to houses 
having clauses of an "inimical nature," "Go 
local." 

Greeks Get Strong Encouragement 

The administration can only "strongly 
encourage" Greek houses to "rid themselves 
of restrictive clauses of discriminatory prac- 
tices." 

How are the houses to do this? In the 
first place, no sorority on campus, including 
Sigma Kappa (now under investigation by 
the Massachusetts General Court), has such 
a restrictive clause in its membership re- 
quirements. However, that discriminatory 
practices exist is evident. 



The ballots will be mailed to the individual student at 
his campus address. Mr. Keogh will notarize any properly 
handled ballot for the forthcoming election. Keogh is the 
second floor counselor in Greenough, and will be readily 
available for performing this service. 

We have long needed a notary public on campus, and 
the former Chadbourne Senator is to be congratulated for 
receiving his appointment from Governor Herter.

UMass Stars at Exposition 

The university, this week, joined the nearly half million people 
who annually visit the "Show Window of the East"— the Eastern 
States Exposition which closes Siinday. 

Located in West Springfield just 23 miles from here, the Exposi- 
tion—the largest fair East of the Mississippi — prides itself on its 
educational as well as entertainment value. 

Boasting the largest livestock show in the East, the 175 acre 
fair grounds teems with prize animals from Maine down through 
Delaware. The university this past week took top honors in many of 
the livestock contests. 

"Bay State Classique," a university Morgan Mare, won top prize 
in her class while other university Morgans won three other classes. 

In the Intercollegiate Judging Contests, the university again 
starred, bringing back to Amherst a shelf full of sterling trophies. 

Education, excitement and entertainment permeate every inch 
of the widely known fair where the complete authentic colonial vil- 
lage, the 123,000 square foot Industrial Arts Building, the beautiful -^_ 
buildings on the Avenue of States, and scores of other exhibits provide [^kctCllCS 
the most complete birds-eye view of the wealth of the nation avail 
able.

UM Frats Have Clauses 

In fact, Dean Hopkins reports that at Rp-^TTip 
least two or three fraternities on campus it-v^^ "■'^ 
do have written discriminatory clauses. 

Year after year at national fraternity 
conventions, a vote to blot out such restric- 
tions has resulted in a victory for the south- 
ern block.

The Proud and the Profane 



Don't Go Local 

Some fervent opinion-givers would make 
all houses that practice discrimination on 
this tax-supported university campus go lo- 
cal at once. Make them understand that any 
organization must submit to the central gov- 
ernment of the university structure in which 
they exist regardless of their financial or 
other independence. 

Needless to say, such action would have 
some effect on the national organization. 

Must Be Gradual 

But in actuality, all it would do would be 
to remove some more opposition to the dis- 
criminatory practices within the national. 
Control by the southern claws-favoring chap- 
ters would become tighter with the backing 
out of the northern anti-segregation chap- 
ters. 

The Provost is correct, it will be a gi'ad- 
ual sort of thing. But it must not be a watch- 
and-wait sort of thing. 

Take A Stand 

The local Sigma Kappa chapter is stand- 
ing silent awaiting word from the glued lips 
of the national organization. 

Sigma Kappa must be followed by all 
Greeks in writing to their nationals indicat- 
ing a strong stand against discriminatory 
practices— whether they are sure such prac- 
tices exist or not. Don't just watch and wait. 



The Proud and Profane, based on Lucy Hemdon Crockett's book, 
The Magnificent Bastard, is a deeply powerful movie, filled through- 
out with intense conflict and anticlimax. The action takes place dur- 
ing World War II in the Pacific area, chiefly on Guadalcanal. 

The essence of the film lies perhaps in characterization. William 
Holden turns in a penetrating performance as Colonel Black, an arro- 
gant, cold, iron man officer. He has no regard whatever for his men's 
feelings. This attitude has been brought about as a result of his past, 
when, as a destitute half-breed Indian he was forced to accept charity. 
Such a life has left a deep impression upon him and he rebels against 
this pa.st with an intense pride and egotism. Deborah Kerr co-stars as 
Lee Ashley, a Red Cross worker whose husband has been killed on 
Guadalcanal. She has taken this job, in order to help herself forget 
his death. However, it is revealed that one of her inner motives has 
been to determine whether he died as a man or a coward. The Colonel 
and Mrs. Ashley begin a strange relationship which almost ends in 
tragedy. Both are eventually brought aroimd to realize that their 
attitudes had been wrong. To learn this, they had to pay a grueling 
price. 

Thelma Ritter, as Kate, contributes the necessary element of 
humor. She is a middle aged Red Cross worker, full of vitality and 
words of cheer for the wounded or homesick. Her acting has a wel- 
come freshness. 

In the big scenes, drama is intense. The story in general is real- 
istic, bearing much of the behind the scenes tragedy brought about 
by war and its destruction to personalities. All of the characters 
concerned suffer ill affects, and each personality changes in some 
way from its experiences. 

Summing up, the Proud and Profane is a winner, well stocked in 
the elements of conflict, drama, humor, tragedy, and whatnot. It's 
well worth seeing.

Letter to the Editor.... 



Booth Boosts Balloting 

A recent article in The Springfield Daily 
News reported that American college stu- 
dents were considered either apathetic or 
confused about the current presidential elec- 
tion in general. 

But the response at the registration vot- 
ing information booth in the Cage seems to 
imply that this doesn't apply to UMass stu- 
dents. 

Recently appointed Notary' Public Rich- 
ard J. Keogh received over 300 requests for 
information or absentee ballots. 

(Continued in next column) 



To the Editor: 

Any newspaper fortunate 
enough to combine freedom of 
and monopoly over the press 
wields enormous opinion making 
powers for good or evil. The Col- 
legian is such a newspaper and 
has the responsibility of report- 
ing news in a fair and unbiased 
manner. This has generally been 
done. But unfortunately the first 
issue of the new academic year 
appeared to be an exception. 

Devoted almost exclusively to 
the explosive contemporary 
American problem of racial dis- 
crimination, last Tuesday's issue 
allowed the over-all pictvire to re* 
main blurred. 

Most of us on this campus un- 
doubtably believe discrimination 
or segregation based solely on 
race to be abominable. But as 
long as there are those individ- 
uals or organizations — local or 
national — who do not share this 
view, the problem will remain 
and peaceful democratic solution 
will prove difficult. 

Solution of any problem re- 
quires a knowledge of all the 



facts and issues. What is or 
should be the relationship of fra- 
ternities and sororities to the uni- 
versity as a whole? What rights 
do or should private social or- 
ganizations enjoy in a liberal- 
democratic society? These are 
two important aspects of the 
problem the Collegian failed to 
touch upon. 

The relationship of fraternities 
and sororities to the university 
can be of three types. In what 
might be termed a free relation- 
ship, the university assumes a 
nearly complete hands off policy. 
The individual social organiza- 
tions are allowed to maintain and 
run their houses and activities 
as they choose. History has 
taught most institutions of 
higher learning that this doesn't 
work. Excessive drinking, gam- 
bling, and loose moral conduct 
result from such a liberal policy. 
And parents usually expect .a 
college to provide not only ade- 
quate curriculai direction, but 
proper supervision of extra-cur- 
ricular and particularly social af- 
fairs, (CGntinued nemt column) 



This has led to a second type of relationship. 
Here the university maintains a tighter grip on 
fraternity-sorority activities. Rules and i*egulations 
compel the social organizations to conform to cer- 
tain ways and means of pledging, partying, and so 
forth. But the fraternities and sororities do retain 
a large measure of self-government. This type of 
relationship now exists on the campus of the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts. 

The third type of relationship would be a total 
inclusion of fraternities and sororities within the 
sphere of administrative compulsion. Here the uni- 
versity alone sanctions and controls any social or- 
ganization. This usually leads to a breakdown of 
national fraternal ties, and often to abolishment 
of fraternities and sororit-es as such. 

Probably most members of our collegiate society 
prefer the second or mixed control type of relation- 
ship. But every time the administration is forced 
by legislative action from Boston, or merely by 
heartfelt necessity, to wield more control, by that 
much have the self-governing rights of the fratern- 
ities and sororities been further limited. The rela- 
tionship moves further toward the third type of 
unlimited university control. 

In a truly liberal society social organizations 
are allowed as much freedom as possible. In a truly 
democratic society such organizations can be placed 
under as much government control as the majority 
dictates. If the legislature of the Commonwealth 
votes to outlaw discrimination in fraternities and 
sororities at state institutions, democracy wins over 
liberalism. And if the issue is pressed private na- 
tional-local agreements for a discriminatory consti- 
tution won't help. National fraternal ties will yield 
to local control. They have aready at Dartmouth, 
Columbia, and the State University of New York 
to name a few. 

To return to the Collegian in conclusion: The ad- 
verse publicity accorded a University sorority, 
Sigma Kappa, in last Tuesday's issue was rather 
unfair. The local chapter of a national sorority 
was publicized for something which occurred else- 
where. Why was Sigma Kappa singled out? A few 
years ago the Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity chapter 
at Boston University voted to go local because the 
national organization forbade them to pledge a ne- 
gro. Why didn't the Collegian begin its crusade at 
that time? The Alpha chapter of Phi Sig is on this 
campus. Surely that was a golden opportunity to be- 
gin a crusade. Why must a segregated sorority like 
Sigma Kappa bear the burden of monopolistic ad- 
verse publicity? 

The Collegian claims to be a free and responsible 
press. But when it begins to present only one side 
of a campus issue, or singles out some person or

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. SEPTEMBER 21, 1956 



UMass Faces AIC Tomorrow S w w Award $ 
Redmen YanCon Hopes Dim 



Tomorrow may or may not be 
the first of "a mimber of 
gloomy Saturdays" forcast by 
Sports Illustrated. 

The Redmen will be looking 
for their first victory as the 
current edition of Coach Charlie 
O'Rourke's gridmen open the 
season against A.I.C. at Spring- 
field. 

A. I.e. figures as a not too po- 
tent threat to the yet unmarred 

Redmen record. But You can 

never tell. Ideally, tomorrow 
would be little more than a 
wai-mup for the UMies. Coach 
O'Rourke is looking ahead to next 
week's B.U. game, 

B.U., which replaced Harvard 
in the eight game schedule after 
last year's 60-6 debacle, is plan- 
ning to use The Massachusetts 
squad as "the soft opener". 
UMass has the potential to stop 
B.U. cold; just as American In- 
ternational College has the po-

tential to hand the home team 
the first of its "gloomy Satur- 
days". 

Sports Illustrated has this to 
say about this year's team : "The 
Redmen under Coach Charlie 
O'Rburke, Boston College's great 
halfback of 1940, are not serious 
Yankee Conference contenders 
this year, but they have the kind 
of explosive offense that is liable 
to upset anyone on their schedule 
when it clicks properly." 

Coach O'Rourke adds this com- 
ment: "Offensively we should be 
one of the strongest elevens, but 
the success of the season hinges 
on our defensive play." 

Here is the shape-up for to- 
morrow's contest. Tom Whalen 
will be calling signals in the 
quarterback slot. Flanking Whal- 
en will be halfbacks Dick Wright 
and Charlie Mellen. Mellen fig- 
ures to be the leading ground- 
gainer tomorrow. Bringing up the 
rear, in the fullback position, 
will be big Rog Bai-ous, the 185 
lb. power runner. 

Buzz Allen and guard Jim Do- 
lan will hold down the center of 
the line. The other guard could 
either be Al Bedrosian, Bob 
Sampson, or Phil Berardi. All 
three will probably see action. 
Frank Spriggs, "Tinker" Con- 
nolly, and Art Miller will alter- 
nate in the important tackle 
spots.

UMass athletes will be subsi- 
dized again this year. 

The Wellworth Pharmacy, 
leading Amherst apothecary, will 
sponsor an award to the "Ath- 
lete of the Week," every week 
throughout the school year. 

The first award will be given 
for athletic efforts during the 
week of Sept. 16-23 (or in plain 
English, to the outstanding per- 
former in tomorrow's football op- 
ener against AIC). 

The award goes to the varsity 
player who does the most out- 
standing work during a certain 
week. 

Last year, nine letter man and 
now Frosh Track Coach 
"Squeaky" Horn was the only 
double winner. 

What does the Hero of the 
Week receive? 

Beside the handsome certifi- 
cate (suitable for framing) the 
winner will take home a gift bag 
of goodies from the friendly 
Wellworth Pharmacy. 

The mercandise has a value of 
$2 up to $5. It includes . . . well, 
you better ask a former winner. 

FROSH CANDIDATES 

Any freshman interested 
in trying out for the Fresh- 
man Cross .Country Team 
please report to Freshman 
Coach Robert C. "Squeaky" 
Horn in the Cage dressing 
room any afternoon. 

Nothing like cross country 
to get in shape for indoor 
and Spring Track. 



THE MURAL MIRROR 

Frosh Participation Urged 
To Boost Mural Program 

by STEVE SANFIELD 

Intramurals are shaping up at last! For the first time in mural 
history a handbook containing the rules for all phases of each sport 
has been published. Congratulations are due to the Intramural Coun- 
cil and to Coach Woronicz for the fine job they've done. 

Because so many have asked for it, volleyball has been added 
to the intramural program in the form of a tournament. It will be 
played after the football season, and it is expected that every fra- 
ternity and dormitory will floor a topnotch team. 

The first meeting of the Intramural Council will be held next 
Tuesday evening at 7:30 in room 10 at the Cage. It is extremely im- 
portant that all fraternity, donnitory, and indei)endent athletic man- 
agers attend in order to get the season off to a flying start. 

I would like to take this opportimity to speak primarily to the 
Freshman. The main purpose of the intramxiral program is to give 
every student a chance to take part in at least one sport during the 
school year. At the present time the program includes the following 
sports: touch football, volleyball, basketball, and softball. Surely 
out of all these every student should find one sport to his liking. 

Remember, the intramural program is for YOU — the student. To 
quote the Intramural Handbook, 

"For every man there is: 

1. A sport he enjoys 

2. A team on which to play 

3. Fair and even competition 

4. Sui)ervision, guidance, and instruction." 

I have tried to show you that the program has been set up for 
your benefit. In order that it be a success it needs your full partici- 
I>ation. So how about it Frosh?

Lewis Takes 
Top Honors 
In Dorm Sing 

Top honors at the freshman 
Interdorm Sing and Talent 
Night in the cage Saturday 
went to Lewis House under 
the direction of Mary Ellen 
Boland. Mrs. J. Paul Mather 
presented a plaque. 

In second place was Arnold 
under the direction of Frank 
Danforth and third was Crab- 
tree led by Donald Hiller. 

Individual acts interspersed 
among the dorm presentations 
included Don Camp of Thatch- 
er, Sandy Bishop of Crabtree, 
Jack Knight of Thatcher, Ca- 
role Adams of the Abbey and 
twin brothers Curtis and Don- 
ald Paine of Lewis. 

Gerald Portnoy was master 
of ceremonies. 

Dean Helen Curtis said she 
was pleased with the job done 
by the Revelers and student 
music leaders. 



School Loan 
Plan Passed 

President Mather has been ap- 
pointed to the board of directors 
of The Massachusetts Higher 
Education Assistant Corporation, 
which furnishes loans for deserv- 
ing students living in Massachu- 
setts. 

This new loan fund, the first 
in the United States, was made 
law last July. Elmer O. Capper, 
president of the Massachusetts 
Bankers Association, will head 
the private corporation. 

Students through their first 
year of college and certified by 
their deans as having scholastic 
ability and moral character are 
eligible for a loan of as much 
as $1000 a year for three years. 

The bank and the student will 
make an individual contract on 
repayment. Interest rates on the 
loans are expected to run from 
3 to 6 per cent. Repayment 
usually will run three years. 



Nippon Prof 
Cited By UM 

Award of an honorary Doctor 
of Laws degree from UMasc has 
been made to Harusada Sug^in- 
ome, president of Hokkaido Uni- 
versity at Sapporo, Japan. 

The degree, conferred by Pres- 
ident Mather, cited Suginome as 
"scientist and educator" and as 
an "inheritor of the tradition of 
cooperation between east and 
west". 

Mather is currently in Japan 
oy invitation to work out a pro- 
gram of mutual advice and as- 
sistance in agriculture. 

The degree was conferred "in 
token of our desire to continue 
the firiii friendship established by 
Prof. Clark." William S. Clark, 
third president of Massachusetts 
Agricultural College, helped es- 
tablish Hokkaido University. 



'Still Waiting,' SK Here Looks To National; 
More Hearings Said Liltely, Bill Possible 

Phi Sig Restrictive; 
Chapter Fights Bias 



The president of Phi Sigma Kappa here said yester- 
day his national fraternity restricts Jewish and Negro stu- 
dents. The local chapter is doing all that it can to fight 
discrimination, p r e s i d ent 



George Dittomasi said. 

Phi Sig here, the alpha chap- 
ter of the national, has a Jewish 
member now and last year had 
a brother who was a Mohamme- 
dan exchange student reported 
Dittomasi last night. 

MIT, WPI Help 

Phi Sigma Kappa chapters at 
Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology and Worcester Polytech- 
nic Institute are helping fight 
bias, Dittomasi said. 

He also noted that the restric- 
tive clause was not in the char- 
ter of the fraternity. 

Dean Robert Hopkins and 
James Burke, secretary of the 



university, agreed yesterday that 
two fraternities here have out 
and out discrimination clauses. 

Two other fraternities on cam- 
pus have vague clauses which 
could be interpreted as discrim- 
inatory, Burke claimed. 

Hopkins said he is gathering 
information this week on what 
steps the local chapters are tak- 
ing to rid their fraternities of 
restrictive clauses. 

Continually narrowing votes to 
do away with such clauses are 
indicative of the progress fra- 
ternities are making at their 
conclaves, Hopkins said.

Committee Will Meet 
To Decide Next Move 

by RICHARD MILLER 

Sigma Kappa chapter here is "still" waiting to hear 
from the national headquarters before commenting on the 
summer oustings of the Tufts and Cornell locals. 

"I can't tell you any more than we've already told you," 
Miss Jane Campos, the second vice-president of the UM 
chapter, said last light, "as we're still waiting to hear from 
national." 

Miss Evelyn Murphy, the president of the house, was 
ill and unavailable for comment. 

A week ago last Sunday Miss Murphy said that she 
expected to hear from the national headquarters in about 
a week. 

According to Representa- 
tive Sumner Z. Kaplan, 
there is still a definite pos- 
sibility that a bill will be filed in 
the state legislature to exclude 
Sigma Kappa from state-sup- 
ported campuses. 

The bipartisan State House 
committee studying possible dis- 
crimination in the Sigma Kappa 
expulsions will meet this week 
in executive session to discuss 



Vet Senator 
To Quit At 

1st Session 

With its treasurer pro- 
tem on the verge of resig- 
nation, the Student Senate 
will meet tonight to open its 
'56-'57 season. 

Resigning will be Jona- 
than (Sam) Snead, a thn-i' year 
veteran of Senate wars. Snead 
said last nig-ht that family obli- 
gations have impelled him to 
leave the leg-islature.

treasurer for the lame duck Sen- 
ate. Snead has been pro-tem head 
of the powerful Finance Commit- 
tee. 

Other rro-Tems 

Other stopgap Senate leaders 
are Lawrence I'arrish, president; 
Miss Marcia Wineg-ard, vice-pres- 
ident; and Miss Ruth Kirk, secre- 
tary'. 

Parrish said last night he ex- 
pects alx)ut a dozen veteran sen- 
ators to return. 

Included in that total will lie 
seven of the nine at-large repre- 
sentatives elected last spring: 
seniors Parrish and Miss Wine- 
gard, juniors Alan Christianson 
and Miss Deidre MsicLeod, and 
sophomores Michael Donovan, 
Gt^rald Grimes and Miss Susan 
Harrington. 

New At-Larges 

Two other at-larges, senior 
Miss Marilyn Towle and junior 
Miss Phyllis Barron, are new sen- 
ators. 

Last year 19 incumbents at- 
tended the Senate's opener. 

Elections for the 32 seats from 
dorms, frat«>mitiea and sororities 
wH be held in October. A year 
ago, nine of the .'^2 were won by 
men and women with previous 
Senate experience. 

.shi)iild the fiKiirc hold — nine 
again r.' rl.iicil in Ortoher — the 
.Senate would have Ki returnees. 

Pni-t«m President Parrish said 
last night that the [laymmt of 
the $10 Student Tninn tax hefnre 
the building opened was "unfor- 
tunate" and "more or less inevit- 

a})le."

Kaplan also said that he would 
like to get the opinion of some 
sociologists on the matter. 

Comell Sigma Kappa, a chap-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 1956 



Gotta Be 

Yes or No 



Last week, in the first Collegian press 
conference of the year, Dean Hopkins stated 
very clearly that there are fraternities on 
this campus having restrictive clauses. He 
declined to reveal their names. Also last 
week, James Burke, Secretary of the univer- 
sity, appearing at the Boston hearings on 
bias in fraternities and sororities, made the 
statement tha^ there is no discrimination in 
any Greek organization on this campus. 

Here we have two members of the ad- 
ministration who seem to have quite differ- 
ent opinions as to the situation. The obvi- 
ous question is "Who is right?" Let's get 
together. 

Dean Hopkins has said that he is in pos- 
session of the clauses or statements on 
clauses of membership for every fraternity 
on campus. In the light of this, we are in- 
clined to say that the Dean is in the know 
about these things. 

Now we come to Mr, Burke. As Secre- 
tary of this institution, he should, we as- 
sume, understand exactly what is going on 
behind the scenes. How, then, the contra- 
dictory statement that we have no restric- 
tive practices, after the Dean has reported 
that we do, and in Collegian headlines? 

The Boston press, as we all know, is al- 
ways eager to find inflammatory material 
concerning this school. We are quite fortu- 
nate that they have not as yet swooped upon 
this paradox. 



Is It Contagious? 

Again congratulations are extended to 
members of the Class of 1960, this time for 
the outstanding performances at the Inter- 
dorm Sing. 

Never have so many of the male popula- 
tion of freshmen shown such enthusiasm as 
evidenced by the fact that Lewis dorm 
walked away with the trophy. 

Let's see if some of this great spirit 
might be contagious to the upperclassmen.

During this week and in those to come members of the freshman 
class will come face to face with Adelphia and Mortarboard, the sen- 
ior men's and women's honor societies, who will jointly conduce dis- 
cussions in the frosh dormitories. These talks will serve to introduce 
campus life to the freshmen and to help them through any foresee- 
able difficulties. 

The Adelphians are those nine senior men, easily recognized by 
their maroon blazers w^ith the Greek spelling of Adelphia on their 
pockets, chosen for exhibiting the qualifications of fellowship, and 
leadership in the extracurricular activities on campus. Unlike Mortar- 
board there is no definite scholastic average mentioned in the re- 
quirements. Nineteen men students, of whom ten may be seniors and 
nine may be juniors, are tapped at the University Honor's Convoca- 
tion in the Spring. 

Society Is Local 

This society is a local one, founded at the university to foster 
and uphold the highest type of fellowship, Ideals, and interests at 
UMass. Its aim is to stimulate and promote leadership among under- 
classmen by participation in campus activities. It awards them by a 
final recognition before their graduation. 

The freshman discussions are not the only joint effort between 
Mortar Board and Adelphia for they work almost as a team through- 
out the year. They sponsor pep rallies and rally dances for the uni- 
versity; usher at major conventions and cooperate on the production 
of Campus Varieties, the annual show starring both faculty and stu- 
dents. 

Re-«vaIuation This Year 

This year Adelphia plans to re-evaluate the actual underlying 
purpose of the organization. It hopes to establish, or at least to for- 
mulate the plans for the establishment of new and significantly worth- 
while groups which would add to a well-rounded campus life. Last 
year they established the Debating Society and will continue to lead 
it until an independent group or the Scrolls and Maroon Kby are able 
to take the guidance of it. 

This year the International Weekend, which is scheduled for the 
winter, will constitute one of its heavier projects. This annual event 
is sponsored by Adelphia, Mortar Board, the Student Senate, and the 
International Weekend Committee. 



It has come to our attention that a large num< 
ber of freshmen on the campus are as yet unfamil- 
iar with the slanguage employed by the upperclass- 
men. We, therefore present here a short dictionary 
of some of the more popular terms of the university 
dialect. 

It will be noticed that certain words such as in- 
telligence, ideas, ambitions, WORK, etc. have not 
been included in this list. That is because wurds of 
this nature have no meaning on this campus what- 
soever. 

Amherst College — a poor school on the other side 

of town; they don't own a single cow or tractor. 

Apathy — a term formerly used to describe anything 

from sleep to boredom; never again to darken 

these pages except in jest. 

Barsalotti's — a laboratory for study of influence of 

alcohol on sex drive. 
Bookstore — a place where students wait three hours 
to be told that the books they want haven't come 
in yet. 
Co-eds — female students sent to study at the same 
school at which male students are studying with 
the result that no one studies. 
Comparative Anatomy — (not what you're thinking) 

— a gut course. 
C-,Store — a refuge from classes with standing room 

only in the barber shop. 
English — a course offered as a diversion for agri- 
cultural students and other science majors. 
Goodell Library — an edifice on campus in which are 
to be found all the works of the English 
Language (e.g., Cats and All About Tliem, by 
Lewis Harold Fairchild, or Com and Various 
Amendments As Food For Hogs, by John R. 
Fain). 
Grassing — a team sport. 

Grind — anyone who passes an exam honestly. 
Home Economics — a psuedo-major which co-eds pre- 
tend to take while looking for a husband. 
Instructor — someone who reads today what he as- 
signs you tomorrow. 
Key— device to open freshman Locks. 
Knurd — spell it backwards. 

LA Annex — barnlike structure held together by the 
proverbial paint, imagination, and "pigeon drop- 
pings." 
Labor— a form of exercise, the threat of which 

keeps many students in college. 
Massachusetts— an eastern state which condescends 
to give its name and clerical help (but no 
money) to this university. 
North College — a remarkable building, built by the 
Vikings, first white visitors to these shores. At 
present it is mainly inhabited by parrota who 
mutter about the sounds in their heads. 
Pond Green — grassing site. 
Psychology — a course which teaches how to drive 

rats insane. 
Rope Pull— a device whereby 200 sophomores pull 

50 freshmen through college pond. 
Scholarships — payments made to athletes. 
Snob Hill— like San Francisco's Nob Hill, only 
steeper; also derived from Butterfield dorm, 
sometimes called Butterfield Manor. 
Spring— a season; easily recognized on campus by 

the odor of fertilizer. 
Spring Day— a grassing knurd on Pond Green 
Study— antiquated method of passing exams.

Walking the Plank 

Elsewhere on this page is a compilation of UMie slang. 
It may be that of the words that characterize this or any 
other campus, "UMie" has one of the more interesting 
histories. 

I am not sure of its derivations, but it seems to have 
come about something like this: 

Back in the fall of '52 and a kind of winged Schmoo, but 



probably earlier, Amherst 
College students used the 
term UMie in a slightly super- 
cilious way, somehow emphasiz- 
ing the "Natural superiority of 
the Ivy League, Small Version." 

Irritated students here even- 
tually—the fall of '54, maybe — 
learned to use the word to des- 
cribe themselves, thus removing 
fiom it the sting. 

Accepted . . . 

And so UMie became a barbless 
word, finally making its way onto 
the pages of the Collegian. 
Which may or may not be evi- 
dence of its final vulgarization 
and acceptance. 

Now, the chronology may be 
all off, but I am only trying to 
spur a little thought; from such 
investigations tradition grows, 
and with tradition we will sup- 
plant Harvard. Or so goes some 
people's theory. 

What happened to UMie after 
this? 

As it grew to be accepted, it 
of course increased the feelings 
of clannishness in the members 
of this university community. 

It may have trickled through 
to the professors, but I suspect 
they are inunune from such jazz. 
No matter, we were UMies, a 
community. 

By Al Capp 

By Winter Carnival time last 
year Al Capp drew us a UMie, 



the character never gained cur- 
rency and we escaped being 
called, I suppose, SchmooMies by 
scornful Amherstonians. 

From here, with its fonnal 
Winter Carnival acceptance, 
UMie did something that words 
don't do, historically speaking. It 
got longer. 

Most words get shorter as they 
become better known (except per- 
haps in German). Temperature, 
for instance, shows signs of 
transmigrating its soul into an 
epitome of condensation, temp. 
But not UMie. 

Extended 
Its next step was to UMieland, 
meaning campus or UM. Observe 
the headline on page 2 of this 
year's first Collegian: 

"Welcome to UMieland, where 
finals begin January 14." 

Of course, UM and UMieland 
are exactly the same thing, but 
probably the Universities of 
Minnesota, Montana, Missouri, 
Maine, Maryland, Mississippi and 
Michigan aren't called UMie- 
lands, and what ho! onward and 
upward with the groupiness of 
the student body of this school. 
Next derivation is even longer : 
UMielanders, something like 
Marylanders or Zululanders. It 
too is a useless word but as the 
relativistic socialogists and psy- 
chologists among us say, it fills 
a deep need (for feeling gmupy) 
and hence is good. 



Queen Joan 
Reigns Again 

A face familiar to mem- 
bers of the university com- 
munity will soon be as equal- 
ly familiar to television 
viewers and businessmen 
throughout the country. The 
face is that of Joan Ci'aw- 
ford, Queen of the 1956 
Winter Carnival, now a 
Conover model. 

Joan has been selected as 
National Business Queen to 
reign over the 5 day expo- 
sition at the New York Coli- 
seum, from Oct. 15-19. She 
will act as hostess for the 
entire show. 

Joan will appear this 
week on the nationally tele- 
cast Arlene Francis "Home" 
show. The progi^am reaches 
Amherst at 11 each morn- 
ing, and Joan will be seen 
on Monday, Thursday and 
Friday. 

The Ted Steele Band- 
stand, the Will Rogers Good 
Morning Show, and the Mar- 
tin-Lewis telethon mark sev- 
eral of her other TV exper- 
iences. 

A front page feature will 
be carried next week by the 
New York Inquirer compar- 
ing Joan to the Miss Craw- 
ford of Hollywood fame, and 
mention has been made of 
her in the columns of Walter 




JOAN CRAWFORD 
1956 Winter Carnival Queen 

Winchell and Frank Farrell mester at Hunter College in 

as one of the most promising New York to complete cred- 

young models. its for her diploma. The Ro- 

June marked the begin- bert Rollins' Blazer ads, dis- 



ning of Joan's career as a 
commercial and fashion 
model, when she went to 
New York after leaving this 
campus. Joan is still a col- 
legian at heart though, as 
evidenced by the fact that 
she wishes to enroll next se- 



tributed to every college 
campus in the country will 
carry Joan as the feature 
model. 

While at the university 
Joan was an English major, 
and a member of Kappa 
Kappa Gamma.

Aces Hold Redmen To 6-6 Tie; 
DeValle Romps For Long TD; 
Both Teams Cheated By Clock 



The annual tilt bftwetii the 
UMass Redmen and the AlC 
Aces played last Saturday at 
AIC Fifid, Springfield, pro<Iucf'd 
almost everything ima}j:inable ex- 
cept a winner. 

The two teams battled to a 
6-6 tie, and both had the experi- 
ence of moving the ball into the 
very sliadows of the goal posts 
and haviiisr the clock run out on 
them. It happened to the Aces 
at the end of the first half, and 
the Redmen were frustrated in 
the same manner at the close of 
the contest. 

When the clock ran out on 
AIC at the close of the second 
quarter, they were on the Red- 
men's 5 yard line with a first 
down. This seemed to get their 
dander up, as they came out for 
the second half and proceded to 
8Core within minutes on a series 
of yard eating pass plays. 

The Redmen drew first blood 
on a sensational 68 yard dash 
by Bob ''Native Dancer" DeValle 
that was good for 6 points. 
Charlie Mellen's try for the extra 



by TED RAYMOND 

point went avviy, howevei', when 
the whole AIC line charged in 
to get a close look at the try. 
After the Redmen score in the 
first quarter, the game was a 
seesaw affair till the half. There 
were several interceptions by 
both .'■iilis, and the Redmen 
mutfed >;(\-e!al scoring ojiportuni- 
ties. At the close of the half, the 
Aces marched the ball dow^l to 
the UMie goal line only to have 
the clock cheat them out of a 
certain score. 

In the third quarter, the Aces 
stopped the UMass offense cold, 
and when they got the ball they 
opened up their pass offense and 
began to roll. The Redmen's weak 
pass defense stood out like a 
sore thumb, and AIC quarterback 
Bob Anastos took advantage of 
it and passed the Aces down to 
the UMie 15 yard line, where 
he threw a pass to Vin Salvucci 
who was romping around all by 
himself on the left sideline. The 
scoring play was also a crowd 
pleaser as Salvucci had to scoop 
the ball around his ankles and 



stumble into the end zone. The 
Redmen mirrored the action of 
the Aces on the conversion try 
as they swamied all over the 
AIC backfield, and the kick went 
off to the right. 

The ball then moved back and 
forth along the field, changing 
hands so often that the crowd 
looked like they were at a tennis 
match swiveling their heads first 
one way and then the other to 
follow the progress of the game. 

The Redmen seemed to be able 
to move the ball pretty effectively 
on the ground, but every time 
that they got within scoring 
range, the Aces w^ould stiffen and 
fight them off. After one such 
frustration, Charlie Mellen tried 
a field goal from about the AJC 
25 yard line, but the UMass line 
couldn't hold to give him the time 
to get the kick off and it went 
astray. 

The passing attack of the Aces 
was good for yardage all after- 
noon, as the Redmen were out- 
standingly weak on pass defense. 




BOB FERRIANI has a surprised look on his face as he is being 
dumped after receiving a TOMMY WHALEN aerial. This short 
pass play was good for yardage all afternoon, and this one was 
good for ten. — Foleyfoto

Charlie's benefit. The Redmen picked up about 12 yards on this particular play. Don't be too

1956 Soccer Squad Seeks 
Good Season With Green Men 

by BILL CROTTY 

After a disastrous accident early last season the soccer team under the responsive leadership of co- 
captains Bob Abramson and Mel Allen and in tribute to injured Coach Larry Briggs, came back to field 
eleven men every game and finish out the schedule. An amazing feat! This year's team, Coach Briggs 
believes, is made of the same stuff, determination and fortitude that chara<^terized last year's. Coach 
Briggs ha<l nothing but praise to bestow upon the fortunate selection of Ned Bowler and Lou McCary 
to co-captain this squad. Incidentally, both boys are seniors and both hail from Sprin gfield Cathedra l

Harriers to Open Season 
With Seniorless Squad 



by STEVE 

Coach Bill Footrick has lost 
his two standouts of the past 
three seasons, Will Lepkowski 
and Squeaky Horn, through gfrad- 
uation, but in their place he will 
field a seniorless team, headed by 
co-captains Lee Chisholm and 
Tom Flynn. 

Chisholm and Flynn are the 
first juniors to serve as captains 
in the history of UMass athletics. 
The two captains ran in the shad- 
ows of Lepkowski and Horn, but 
should blossom into full bloom 
this fall. 

Other promising juniors are 



NEEDEL 

Pete Schwarz and Richie Prouty. 
If Schwarz can regain the form 
which he displayed during his 
freshman year, he will add meas- 
ureable strength to the Redmen 
Harriers. 

A quintet of sophomores, Don 
Medara, Rich Leonard, Woody 
Thelin, Eric Dahl, and Johnny 
Power, who last year as a fresh- 
man captured the New England 
title at Franklin Park, make not 
only the '56 prospects bright, but 
also the following two years. The 
t-eam opens up against Williams 
on October 6.

Last sp'-ing. Squeaky Horn 
hung up his spikes after posting 
a series of track accomplishments 
that will long be remembered 
here at UMass. This fall the 
name of Horn again finds its 
way into these pages as he makes 
his debut in a new career as 
coach. 

Squeaky will herd the frosh 
harriers through this season, 
and although it will probably 
seem strange to him to be wear- 
ing a full suit of clothes when 
there is running to do, he will 
soon get used to the duty of 




SQUEAKY" HORN 



vicariously sharing the thrill of 
romping over hill and dale. 

Horn is otherwise known as 
the Rockland Rambler. He was 
captain of both spring and win- 
ter track, and also of last year's 
cross country squad. Squeaky 
holds the cross country distance 
record at UMass, one that is not 
likely to be broken too soon. Bob 
was one of the most consistent 
performers in Redmen track his- 
tory, and last year when he was 
paired with Will Lepkowski it 
provided one of the best one-two 
punches in college track. 

All of us here at the Collegian 
would like to take this opportun- 
ity to wish Squeaky the best of 
luck in hi.s new career. 



(but ironically wei*e never in 
school at the same time). 

When pressed for prediction of 
this season's outcome Coach 
Briggs said he didn't know. No 
estimates! The squad is green 
and inexperienced. With only 
nine returning lettermen and the 
need for molding a new line there 
can be no optimistic predictions. 
Yet, Coach Briggs will predict 
that their drive and spirit will 
make up for what they lack in 
skill. The learn is comprised 
mostly of juniors and seniors 
with help from only one or pos- 
sibly two sophomores. As of now, 
there is no definite starting line- 
up. Jim Roenberg, manager, and 
only a very few others are sure 
of their positions. Otherwise, the 
race is wide open. 

At goalie Coach Briggs finds 
the pleasant prospect of choosing 
between two experienced and tal- 
ented veterans, Lynn Sutcliff and 
Chuck Niedzwicki. Fullback finds 
Captain Bowler in one spot and 
Theta Chi's Joe Morrone a dis- 
tinct possibility in the other. 
Backing up these two we have 
Dick Ceculas, Al Cohen, Pete 
Santos and Dick Demergian 
ready to step in. The first six 
starting and substitute halfbacks 
haven't returned. In an effort to 
fill these positions Dick Golas 
and Webb Cutting have been 
switched from the forward wall. 
These two along with Chuck Col- 
lins and the improved quartet of 
Phil Hawkins, Wally Egan, Billy 
Richards and John McGinty hope 
to shoulder the load. 

In the line it's anybody's guess. 
Billy Burke, due to see plenty of 
action, was in an automobile ac- 
cident during the summer and, 
while his status at present is 
doubtful, one thing is certain, and 
that is, he will at least sit out 
the first game. Co-captain Mc- 
Cary is a fixture at left wing. 
Coach Briggs has gambled and 
switched fullback Ted Lee to the

line. Ben Doherty is a hopeful 
and Bill CoUett and Lou Green 
have looked good in pre-season. 
For the rest, Coach Briggs has 
to choose from seniors Bill Mc- 
Carty, Mitch Fiengold (injured 
last spring), and juniors Gus 
Sunquist, Mike Dube, Bob Lind- 
quist, Dick Zanini, Paul Mailman, 
Bob Bienkowski and Ed Walker 
(a track man). At the moment 
the whole line (with the excep- 
tion of McCary) is up in the air. 
Some prospects are beginning to 
shape up in practice but it is too 
early to tell anything. 

The first game is Oct. 3 at 
Coast Guard, and this rates as a 
toss-up. Last season's Coast 
Guard team was just average, 
but you can't say what they'll 
come up with this year. It'll 
probably be best to bet on a 
tight, low-scoring game with two 
good defensive teams. In fact, de- 
fensive emphasis and low-scoring 
frays figure to be the order of 
the day for the first few games. 
The nearest this season's squad 
comes to approaching the strong 
kickers in the tradition of Simp- 
son, whiz of a few years back, is 
Golas and Cutting and possibly 
McCary. 

As for the rest of the teams, 
Amherst, Williams and Trinity, 
as is usual with prep school fed 
teams, figure to be the power- 
houses. Coast Guard and W.P.I, 
you can't tell. UConn, improved 
over last year, held Trinity to a 
tie in a scrimmage. Bridgeport, 
which was good last year, has 
lost most of its team. The Red- 
men figure to have a 50-50 chance 
against Clark, Tufts, Coast 
Guard, W.P.I, and UConn, de- 
pending on how things work out. 
As Coach Briggs says, the team 

might be fair or average or 
might jell into something. It 
could go either way, you can't 
tell. One thing you can be sure of 
though is that the boys won't 
give up for lack of fight.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 25. 1956 



68 Yard TD Gallop Gives Devalle 
First Wellworth Award Of Season 



This week marks the inau^ral 
award of the season to the "Ath- 
lete of the Week", and the clear 
cut choice for the Wellworth 
Awai-d today is Bob DeValle. 

The 185 pound junior halfback 
literally ran away with the hon- 
ors Saturday when he galloped 
68 yards for the sole UMass TD. 
He also proceded to rack up a 
personal total of over 100 yards 
gained in the contest to cinch the 
award. 

DeValle Joins Select Ranks 

The pride of Natick was also 
outstanding in a role as defen- 
sive halfback. By copping the 



award, he joins the ranks of 
such noted l^edmen athletes as 
Russ Kidd, Jack Foley, Dave 
Bartley, and others. With the 
football season still in its in- 
fancy, it is possible that he could 
join the very select number of 
those who are double winners of 
the award. The last athlete to 
turn the trick was the redoubt- 
able Squeaky Hora. 

Football is not the only sport 
that Bob has a chance to shine 
in as he is also a member of 
Bob Footrick's track team. He is 
the top rated sprinter on the 
track team, and as proof of his 
prowess or; the cinders he has

Yankee Conference 
Race Looks Close 

Amongst the old settlers of the 
six New England viniversity 
towns, at least three teams are 
being pi't>minently mentioned as 
Yankee Conference football 
champs for 1956, with the squads 
of Ck)nnecticut, Maine, and Rhode 
Island all mustering strong supH 
port in the pre-season roundup. 

Rhode Island, defending 
champs, lost only three regulars; 
UConn has nine regulars back, 
bolstered by the best frosh team 
in the conference; Maine, runner- 
up in 1955, can start in every 
position. 

Reports from the press agents 
of the six schools indicate a high 
degree of optimism around the 
circuit, with few one sided tilts 
in prospect as the land grant 
colleges launch their tenth year 
of conference competition. 

Brief Sketches of Teams 

CONNECTICUT 

Hit harder than usual by aca- 
demic mortality last spring, 
Coach Ingalls lost a couple of 
his nine returning starters, and 
several promising frosh, but it 
was essentially a sophomore and 
junior squad last year that beat 
Holy Cross and BU. The UConn 
club will be tested thoroughly by 
Springfield, Yale, and Rutgers 
before they meet UMass in their 
first conference game October 13. 
MAINE 

The best defensive team in the 
league laat year, they have the 
same rock-ribbed line on hand 
plus soime talented halfbacks. 
Keai Parady, 1952 quarterback, 
has returned from the service 
and is expected to return to form. 
Fullback is the hole to be filled, 
and a big one it is. Coach Wes- 
terman will be searching hard 
to find a fullback of the caliber 
of Jack Small who made All- 
Conference last year. 

MASSACHUSETTS 

The backfield is well statfed 
with proven performers, and 
Dick Wright and Charlie Mellen 
are rated among the beat in the 
conference, but the line roster is 
sparse. 

NEW HAMPSHIRE 

Chief Boston has ten veteran 
linemen returning, but only one 
back who was a starter last year 
in the person of Ted Wright, an 
All-Conference choice. 

RHODE ISLAND 

The defending champs are 
loaded with top notch veterans, 
but they too have last their best 
in the persons of Charlie Gib- 
bons, Little All-America tackle, 
and Ed DiSimonc, All -Conference 
halfback. The Rams also have a 
new coach, Herb Maack who was 
an assistant for two years to Hal 
Kopp. 

VERMONT 

Tho Catamounts lost little 
Eddie Beck, A11-Npw England 
back, but Coach Donnelly has a 
fairly .string -uiijily of I'XjKTi- 
enccd men. 



SPORTS STAFF MEETING 

There will be an important sports staff meeting Wednes- 
day night, Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. in the Cave at Memorial Hall. 
All staff members are expected to attend. Those who are inter- 
ested in joining the staff are also invited to be there.

FOOTBALL: ITS CAUSE AND CURE 

At next Saturday's football game, while you are sitting 
in your choice student's seat on the ten-yard line, won't 
you give a thought to Alaric Sigafoos? 

Who, you ask, is Alaric Sigafoos? Come closer, sit 
down, light a Philip Morris, savor that natural tobacco 
goodness, sigh contentedly, cross your fat little legs, and 
listen. 

Alaric Sigafoos (1868-1934) started life humbly on a 
farm near Thud, Kansas. His mother and father, both 
named Ralph, were bean-gleaners, and Alaric became a 
bean-gleaner too. But he soon tired of the work and went 
to Memphis where he got a job with a logging firm. Here 
the ex-bean-gleaner worked as a stump-thumper. Then 
he drifted to Texas where he tidied up oil fields (pipe- 
wiper). Then to Arizona where he strung dried fruit 
(fig-rigger) . Then to Virginia where he was a research 
assistant (book-looker). Then to Long Island where he 
dressed poultry (duck-plucker) . Then to California where 
he lectured young women who were about to get married 
(bride-chider). Then to Minnesota where he cut up frozen 
lakes (ice-slicer). Then to Nevada where he determined 
the odds in a gambling house (dice-pricer). Then to 
Milwaukee where he pasted camera lenses together 
(Zeiss-splicer). 

Finally he went to Omaha where he got a job in a 
tannery, beating pig-hides until they were soft and suppla 
(hog-flogger). Here he found happiness at last. 




^sfyumfbdppincss^^ kit-* 



Why, you ask, did he find happiness at last as a hog- 
flogger? Light another firm and fragrant Philip Morriai 
taste that true tobacco flavor, puff, relax, let sweet lass^ 
tude possess your limbs, and listen. 

Next door to the hog-floggery was an almond grov» 
owned by a girl named Chimera Emrick. Chimera was 
pink and white and marvelously hinged, and Alaric was 
hopelessly in love the moment he clapped eyes on her. 
Each day he came to the almond grove to woo Chimera, 
but to no avail. He tried with all his vigor and guile^ 
but she, alas, stayed cool. 

Then one day Alaric got a brilliant idea. It was th« 
day before the annual Omaha Almond Festival. On this 
day, as we all know, every alm.ond grower in Omaha 
«nters a float in the big parade. The floats always consist 
of large cardboard almonds hanging from large cardboard 
almond trees. 

Alaric's inspiration was to stitch pieces of pigskin 
together and inflate them until they looked like big, 
plump almonds. "These sure beat skinny old cardboard 
almonds," said Alaric to himself. "Tomorrow they will 
surely take first prize for Chimera, and she will be mine !" 

Early the next morning Alaric came running to 
Chimera with his inflated pigskin almonds, but she, alas, 
told him she was not entering a float that year. In fact, 
she had just sold her almond grove and was moving East 
to try out with the Boston Red Sox. 

Alaric, upon hearing these glum tidings, flew into a 
violent rage. He started kicking his pigskin almonds all 
over the place. And who should be walking by at that 
very instant but Abner Doubledayl 

Mr. Doubleday, who had invented baseball some years 
earlier, was now trying to invent football, but without 
success. The trouble was, he couldn't figure out what kind 
of ball to use. Now, seeing Alaric kick the pigskin 
spheroids, his problem was suddenly solved. "Eureka!'* 
he cried, and ran to his drawing board, and the rest is 
history !

By Grants; Language 
Studies Given $35,000 

Over $100,000 in research grants was awarded to UM 
this summer by the U.S. Public Health Service and the 
Carnegie Corporation of New York. 
Grants totaling $70,909 



were awarded to three uni- 
versity scientists who will study 
pasteurization processes for milk 
and milk products. 

Principle investigator will be 
Warren Litsky, associate re- 
search professor of bacteriology. 
Associated with Litsky will be 
D. J. Hankinson, head of the de- 
partment of dairy and animal 
science, and R. B. Read Jr., as- 
sistant professor of bacteriology. 

They will be interested in the 
effect of high temperature pas- 
teurization upon disease causing 
bacteria and viruses in milk. 

A $35,000 grant from the Car- 
negie Corporation will be used 
to develop more effective meth- 



ods of teaching languages. 

Stowell Coding, head of the 
department of romance lang- 
uages will act as general super- 
visor. James Ferrigno, associate 
professor of romance languages, 
has been appointed program ad- 
ministrator. 

Provost Shannon McCune 
called the Carnegie grant a high- 
ly significant development in ed- 
ucational leadership here. It rep- 
resents the first time that a 
private corporation has invested 
funds on this campus to raise 
the quality of pul)lic instruction, 
the provost said. 

The program will deal with 
French, German, Italian, Russian 
and Spanish.

intensified by the musical score. 



Study Frats 
At Amherst 

A committee to study and re-

A resolution passed last May 
favoring "the eventual abolition 
of the fraternity system" to be 
replaced by a "social dormitory" 
setup with "social privileges pre- 
sently enjoyed by the fraterni- 
ties" sparked the current investi- 
gation. 

President Charles W. Cole of 
Amherst has said the conunittee 
has no power, adding that "any 
subsequent action would be up to 
the trustees".

VOL. LXII NO. 4 PUBLISHED TWICE WEEKLY 

Student ID's Delayed, 
Fines Will Be Issued 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 195» 



The Student Senate, last 
spring, passed a bill providing 
for the issuing of student ID 
cards for the school year 1956-57. 

Originally these cards were to 
be used by the Athletic Depart- 
ment, Concert Association and 
Library in place of their separ- 
ate cards. 

Senate To Pay For Cards 

Payment for these new, plas- 
ticized cards was to be appro- 
priated largely by the Senate. 
It was urged that the Concert 
Association and Athletic Depart- 
ment would contribute the $240 
they normally would spend on 
printing up their separate cards 
toward the total cost. 

Lawrence Parrish, president 
pro-tem, reported that the Sen- 
ate must pay a remaining bill 
of approximately $1000 for the 
student cards. 

Unpaid Bill A Misunderstanding 

Parrish explained that the un- 
paid bill was the result of the 

Sec. Burke 
Misquoted 

An inaccurate statement was 
printed by the Collegian in the 
issue of Friday, Sept. 21. 

James W. Burke, Secretary of 
the university, was misquoted in 
the news story concerning the 
SK hearing in Boston. On the 
front page of the Collegian ap- 
peared the statement, "He 
(Burke) added that there is no 
discrimination in Sigma Kappa 
or any other sorority or fratern- 
ity on the uTiiversity campus." 

Burke did not say this at the 
hearing. He instead stated that 
he was aware of four fraternities 
that contained discriminatoiy 
clauses, but that these fraterni- 
ties were doing everything pos- 
sible to fight these clauses 
through the national. 

Failure to check sources was 
the cause of the error. 



Say! 



misunderstanding of the Athle- 
tic Department and Library who 
failed to contribute funds for the 
cards. 

Fines Will Be Issued 

Those students, Parrish contin- 
ued, who failed to complete their 
ID cards at registration by for- 
getting to record their birth date 
or recorded them without accur- 
acy, will be notified by the Dean's 
office and will be fined $1 to have 
them corrected. 

Because of these corrections, 
and the necessity of retaking 
some photographs that failed to 
come out, the ID cards will not 
be available for another few 
weeks.

Phi Sigma 
s Jews 
Not Barred 

The Collegian reported Tues- 
day that Phi Sigma Kappa Fra- 
ternity restricts Jews, but, house 
president George Ditomassi said 
this week, this is not true. 

He painted out that the house 
here has a Jewish brother and 
noted that the fraternity has a 
predominantly Jewish house in 
New York state. 

Ditomassi said that the restric- 
tion barring Negroes had been 
pushed through a national con- 
vention by the southern bloc of 
Phi Sig houses. 

The restriction takes the form 
of a resolution and is not part 
of the constitution. 

He repeated that the UM unit 
was determined to gather support 
in an attempt to rescind the bar 
against Negroes at Phi Sig's bi- 
ennial convention next summer 
in Montana. 



Shots Will 
Be Given 

The Student Health service, in 
co-operation with the Amherst 
Board of Health and the State 
Department of Health is sched- 
uling three injections of Salk 
Vaccine for all students under 
20 years of age. 

Anyone wishing the injections 
must register at the Out-Patient 
building of the infirmary group 
by Oct. 6. The dates on which 
the injections will be given will 
be announced later. 



*56 Stockbridge Seniors

The Stockbridge seniors from 
Plymouth dormitory last year 
left a gift of $27.17 to the Car- 
ney Circle and Trailer Park Co- 
operative Playschool, announced 
Joan Hobart, president of the 
Playschool, today. 

The money vnll be used to buy 
play equipment and furniture for

last year by the mothers of Fed- 
eral Circle and the Trailer Park. 

Equipment Received 

Last year the Playschool re- 
ceived play-equipment from the 
faculty women and Kappa Alpha 
Theta sorority. The Amherst 
Womens' Club donated furniture 
to the school. 

It is managed by the mothers 
and is run along the princii)les of 
nursery schools. Both the moth- 
ers and the fathers make toys 
and furniture. 

Mrs. Hampton Is Teacher 

The mothers take turns during 
the week assisting the regular 
teacher, Mrs. Grace Hampton. It 
is held for two hours each week- 
day morning. 

The oflicers of the Playschool

New Procedure Used 
By Sophomore Class 



A new voting procedure for se- 
lection of committee chairman- 
ships has been decided upon.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1956 



Students Pay 
For The ID Fray 

Last spring the Student Senate passed 
a bill for the processing of student ID cards 
for the school year 1956-57. 

Originally the ID's were designed as a 
three-in-one package deal, to be used by the 
Athletic Department, Concert Association 
and library in place of the three separate 
cards issued in previous years for the res- 
pective functions of each. The bulk of the 
payment for these new plasticized cards was 
being appropriated by the Senate, and it was 
agreed that the Concert Association and 
Athletic Department would contribute what 
they normally would spend on printing up 
their separate cards. 

The Concert Association paid their $120, 
but the Athletic Department went ahead and 
printed separate tickets as in the past, claim- 
ing they weren't notified of anything fur- 
ther on the ID's. The money that was to be 
contributed by them, now of necessity is be- 
ing extracted from the Senate treasury. Con- 
sequently, students are paying twice for 
athletic privileges — once through fees to the 
Senate, and once more through their athletic 
fee. 

After the bill for the ID's was passed by 
the Senate, the matter w^as placed in the 
hands of RSO. Because the contract for the 
processing of the cards was made out to 
RSO, it M^as assumed that that office would 
notify both the Senate and Warren McGuirk, 
UM Director of Athletics, of further devel- 
opments. And on the other hand RSO as- 
sumed that since McGuirk's office agreed 
to the original plan, they were aware of the 
ID proceedings. 

To further complicate matters, one quar- 
ter of the students filling out the ID info at 
registration, falsified their ages. The Regis- 
trar's Office then had to check every card 
with official university dat-a, making the ne- 
cessary changes. Consequently, all students 
who put do\vn false birth dates are to be 
fined $1 — this money to go toward the total 
payment of the ID's. This red tape combined 
with the fact that approximately 1,000 pic- 
tures failed to come out and have to be re- 
taken — means that the ID's, such as they 
are, will not be available for another few 
weeks. 

The overall mess probably stpms from 
carelessness on everyone's part. The Senate 
pushed the bill too fast, failing in their haste 
to iron out all the snags. The responsibility 
was then pushed onto RSO, who went ahead 
without the other parties concerned knowing 
(or perhaps caring) exactly what the whole 
thing was about. . , ;: • 



CINDERS STAY AT HOME AS BREHM 
WAGES WAR AGAINST CAMPUS MUD 

by SHIRLEY SOKOLETSKY 

Less mud will be the keynote of our remodeled campus this year, 
it was related by George C. Brehm, superintendent of buildings and 
grounds. 

Such strategic locales as the front and rear walks of the Cage, 
the Stockbridge Road, and the area in front of the Commons were 
graded, drained, and paved during the summer months. 

Parking Lots Cindered 

The parking areas ai'ross from Greenough and Chadboume and 
east of Butterfield, now able to accommodate approximately ninety 
cars, were also re-surfaced as part of the committee's summer pro- 
ject. The new parking lot at French Hall was cindered, graveled, and 
oiled, and the South College lot now boasts a new hard surface. 

Followers of last year's Student Senate campaign for better use 
of university cinders are now able to see the success of last year's 
senate activity, as the flaky excretions from the university power 
plant have filled ruts and holes in parking lots all over campus. 

Kitchens Modernized 

The library will be brighter, this year, with new lighting fixtures 
which have been recently installed. Better lighting can also be ob- 
served in Greenough's kitchen which was completely tiled, painted, 
and re-furnished with fixtures. 

The kitchen at Butterfield has also been modernized by a newly- 
installed acoustic ceiling. 

New Apartments 
The Montagrue House, a building purchased several years ago 
by the university and located on the north side of the campus, has 
been transformed into two up-to-date apartments for families of uni- 
versity employees. 

In addition to building and repairing fire escapes, roofs, and 
lighting and steam systems, Mr. Brehm and his department have 
continued the extensive work of maintaining and improving the build- 
ings and grou-ids of the university. 



PSK TALKS TRUE 

, The candor and cooperation of the presi- 
dent of Phi Sigma Kappa has helped to bring 
the issue of the much-talked-about discrim- 
ination in fraternity membership selection 
out of the darkness of "1 don't knows" and 
"We're waiting to hear from national" 
mystery. 

Geo^-ge Ditomassi, Phi Sig's president, 
revealed to the Collegian last week the full 
story on his fraternity's discriminatory 
clauses. The facts appeared in last Tuesday's 
Collegian. 

Ditomassi will continue his visits to 
neighboring chapters to try to create a 
northern block. While "Dito" discloses past 
attempts and future plans to take action 
against tho clause that a few years ago 
wormed its way into the canons of Phi Sig- 
am Kappa via the southern votes, the others 
are silent. 

Sine* ro efTorts uncloaked by close- 
moutbc.l t« ar is the only action that will win 
victory over the claws of the discriminatory 
demon. 



Collegian: ^Outside Auditor ' 

"... the newspaper, conceding whatever faults you may have 
in your mind, is your bett protection against corruption, tyi-amiy, 
and injustice." 

The above quotation is from the notebook of John S. Knight, 
editor and publisher of the Chicago Daily News. And although it 
may seem high-sounding and idealistic, the truth of the statement 
lies in the fact tliat a newspaper is government's only "outside audi- 
tor" — and that includes government of an educational community. 

Our 700 acre campus is just that— a community of all types 
of i>eople united by the common goal of wanting an education what- 
ever our respective reasons may be. 

The Collegian is the most powerful newspaper on campus. 

Its purpose is not the printing of a twice-weekly bulletin board 
of campus events nor is it the copying of news which can be found 
in outside daily newspapers. 

What then, is it fort 

Another quotation from Knight may help answer the question 
"... probably the most useful service which a newspaper can per- 
form is to safeguard the public interest." 

On campus, the newspaper — just as in a city or town — must up- 
hold what it believes to be right and oppose what it deems to be 
wrong thereby creating an awareness of our problems which is the 
first step toward their ultimate solution. 

The Collegian does not wish to publish a "This We Believe" 
statement, for often such statements are meaningless, and verbose. 

But hereby the editors indicate their realization of the vast re- 
sponsibility they bear. This responsibility involves alert and intelli- 
gent reporting of all campus affairs, unwavering support of con- 
structive efforts on all levels to build a better community, deligent 
digging into the operations of government — both student and admin- 
istrative — at every level, and comprehensive investigations of chi- 
canery and injustice.

THE MURAL MIRROR 

Football Opener Tuesday; 
Kick-off Rules Amended 

by STEVE SANFIELD 

The first meeting of the Intramural Council for the 1956-57 sea- 
son was held last Tuesday evening at the Cage. The near perfect 
attendance of the athletic managers was further proof of the coun- 
cil's success since its inception less than a year ago. 

The most important issue discussed was the changing of the In- 
tramural Handbook rule regarding the kick-off. Part of rule 5 pre- 
viously stated: "A ball out of bounds on the kick-off shall go to the 
receiving team twenty yards from their goal-line, at the mid-field." 
In other words, regardless of where a kick went out of bounds, it 
would have been brought out to the receiver's twenty. 

The rule has been amended to read: "A ball out of bounds with- 
in the receiving team's first zone (the first twenty yards) shall go 
to their twenty yard-line." 

Now comes the time to step out on a limb prediction time. 

This year the league looks to be tighter than ever before. Practically 
every team has improved in one department or another. The race 
for the championship promises to be close right down to the final 
whistle. 

It is this writer's opinion that SAE will emerge on top. They 
finished a strong fourth last year and the majority of the team is 
returning. Theta Chi, who finished second last season, should once 
again hold down the number two spot. One reason for their success 
will be their strong forward wall, regarded by many as the best 
in the league. 

Making it tough for both of these teams will be last year's 
champs, Sig Ep, our choice for third place. Look to Phi Sig to be 
the darkhorse of the league. 

The athletic managers were told that all rosters were due today. 
The rosters are unlimited, but may not be changed after the first 
game. 

The season is scheduled to start this Tuesday night. The Col- 
legium will carry all standings and results. In addition, the paper 
will also cover the game of the week. Each week the Collegian re- 
porter will select the game he believes to be the most important, and 
complete coverage will be carried. 

Coach Woronicz has stressed the importance of the managers 
turning in the rosters by 4 p.m. today in order that the schedule 
be made up immediately. It is necessai-y to get play underway as 
soon as possible this year, because of the "Bowl Game" that will 
be played between our intramural champs and the champs of UNH 
on Uie weekend of the UMass-UNH varsity game. In addition to 
making the i-ewards that go to the intramural football champs that 
much greater, this inaugral attempt at a post season 'mural bowl 
game should pave the way to start a bowl game in all 'mural sports 
possibly on a home-and-away basis with our traditional rivals in 
many of the varsity sports. 



Shallow Squad Faces B.U.; 
Giant Rally Planned In Hub 



Saturday night ia "M" night 
in Boston. Starting with a giant 
rally at 7:30 p.m^ outside the 
right field gate of Boston Uni- 
versity Field, and continuing far 
into the night with a monster 
victory celebration (we hope), 
the chants and exhortations of 
that strange animal, the Umie 
will reverberate through the 
streets of the Hub. 

While the fans and students 
are planning the displays of spir- 
it and working themselves into a 
fever pitch of excitement, Coach 
Chailie O'Rourke and his sturdy 
staff of strategists are also plan- 
ning, arranging and rearranging 
lineups for the pitifully small 30 
man squad, and worrying — in 
fact, mostly worrying. 

The problem of depth, especial- 
ly in the tissue paper thin line, 
has become a problem of such 
magnitude that rumormongers 
have started making book on the 
probability of Chet Gladchack 
and Hank Woronicz applying for 
permission to re-enter the under- 
graduate school. 

A reliable source says that if 
the game movies of the imminent 
contest reveal such glaring mis- 
takes as those taken at the AIC 
game, it would not be sui-prising 
to see Coach O'Rourke doing a

war dance, wrapped from head 
to toe in flapping film, as they 
lead him away to his new home — 
Ward 8. 

To plunge into the heart of 
the situation, however, the Red- 
men are not as bad off as some 
people would have the populace 
believing. As of this morning, the 
word is that Dickie Wright will 
be available for starting duty. 
At the other halfback post, John 
Cieri is slated to answer the 
opening whistle. 

This will lead to the probabil- 
ity of Coach O'Rourke two-pla- 
tooning his halfbacks, using 
Wright and Cieri as one unit 
and Charlie "Supei-sonic" Mellen 
and Bob "Native Dancer" De- 
Valle as the other. A tactic such 
as this would enable O'Rourke to 
have his two swiftest backs in 
operation together. 

John Noble has been a surprise 
switch to quarterback in hopes 
that he will return to the form 
he displayed in crushing the 
highly-touted John Harvards two 
seasons ago.

Walter O. Johnson, mana- 
ger of university boarding 
halls since 1939, has resigned 
to accept a similar job at 
Rensselaer Polytechnic Insti- 
tute in Troy, N. Y. 

Johnson's resignation was an- 
nounced today. It is effective 
Nov. 1. 

Graduated from UM with a 
B.S. in 1935, he immediately 
joined the staff as an assis- 
tant to the boarding hall man- 
ager. Four years later he suc- 
ceeded his boss. 

When Johnson became man- 
ager there was one dining hall 
serving 250 meals a day. Now 
three cafeterias serve more 
than 1000 meals daily. 



Staff To Vote 
On 3 Editions 
A Week Plan 

The Collegian staff will vote 
tomorrow on a plan to expand 
the paper into a thiee-times-a-

If the plan is approved, the 
paper will be printed each Mon- 
day, Wednesday and Friday, 
starting Monday, except for vaca- 
tion dates. 

Action will follow a chain of 
events which began two years 
ago. The publishers of the Col- 
legian approved the proposal 
twianimously Friday. 

The staff will meet in the Mec,

Lights ablaze, Machmer Hall glows at mid>campu$ with its opening about 10 days ofF. 

Final inspection of Machmer Hall is tomorrow. Treasurer Kenneth W. Johnson said last night, 
and if the building proves satisfactory it will be opened within ten days. 

The modern building is named after a late dean, William Machmer, who, said Johnson, was like 
a "grandfather to the students." 

The building is divided into east and west wings, each with three floors, and a central section with 
four floors. There are 42 classrooms, each seating from 30 to 60 students. 

The rooms, light in color and designed for comfort^ have been constructed to provide an atmos- 
pk^c^ conducive to study. An unusual feature in th«|.eaat. wi^g is audiovisual blinds, which enable a

Hearings Resume TomQ^ij^aw? On SK Qnsters 



The committee of the General 
Court inveBtigating the reason 
for the expulsion of two Sigma 
Kappa chapters will resume 
hearings tomorrow at 2 p.m. 
Richard <Joodwin said last night. 

Goodwin, who is conducting the 
investigations, said that he ex- 
pects the committee to make both 
a report and recommendation 
fairly soon after the conclusion 



of the h^^ingS; 

Goodwift said he hoped th<^. 
Gordon Alport, a psychoiogi^ 
from Hai-vard, would attend and 
present his opinions on the ef- 
fects of discrimination on various 
minority groups. 

MoT-e deans from Tufts and 
BU will testify at the hearings 
G6odwin reported.

there are,willi|!g to be reinstated

"We have nothing to say." 



Morris Of UM 
Says Fruition 
StiU Years Off 

The university, acting 
through a committee formed 
more than a year ago, has 
continued to combine with 
Amherst, Mt. Holyoke and 
Smith Colleges to study the 
creation of a cooperative ed- 
ucational program to pro- 
vide broadened facilities for 
their 9000 students. 

In a report to the presidents of 
the schools, the committee on co- 
operation has recommended: 

1) joint classroom instruction; 

2) coordinated graduate and 
undergraduate programs; 

3) an educational FM station; 

4) coordinated lecture, concert 
and art display series; 

5) a joint calendar; and 

6) a combined remedial read- 
ing program. 

Current Student Uninvolved 

But, warned Bruce Morris of 
the economics department here 
and UM representative on the 
committee on cooperation, most 
of the proposals will not be ef- 
fected until after the current 
crop of students has graduated. 

The committee was formed 
with the aid of a grant from the 
Fund for the Advancement of 
Education, which provided money 
to the profs who reduced their 
teaching loads " to work on the 
committee. 

Eventuai CtStttion of .t^g^l^

Six Gains, Four Loeaes 

The committee's repoirt cited 
six advantages to the schbols co- 
operating in the plan, and four 
disadvantages. 

Lilted as benefits: 

1) A full graduate program 
with qualified staff; 

2) "The opportunity to satisfy

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, TUESDAY. OCTOBER 2. 1956 



A VICTORY... 

The university football team will have 
a loss recorded on the score sheets after the 
tilt with Boston University Saturday night. 
That's not the way we see it. 

We will record it as a victory, won with 
guts and a never-say-die attitude. The show- 
ing made by every member of our team was 
outstanding, and a credit to their coach. 

Sports writers predicted an easy roll- 
over for BU, but things didn't turn out that 
way. The score doesn't tell the full story. 
Boston papars carried such headlines as 
"BU Squeaks by Mass," notwithstanding the 
score. 

Little similarity existed between the pic- 
ture presented by the team at AIC last week 
and tli^^ftntnijiowing of Saturday. They were 
ajkmfii, andythey acted the part. 

Approxlmato attendance at the game was 
350,000. 3<D00 of that number were UM sup- 
portersx Most of them went expecting to 
)ut they never showed it. The spirit 

the cro^\•<l was enthusiastic. Perhaps much 
of this was attributed to the over-all party 
atmosphere of the weekend, but the fans 
were in earnest. It even looked for a mo- 
ment as if our fondest hopes would be real- 
ized in a tie, but luck was batting the other 

way. 

The team has made us proud of them. 
Let's remember that in the future, and re- 
pay them by making them proud of us.

SCROLLS ARE 
FROSH GUIDES 

Although the freshman class is by now well acquainted with the 
group of sophomore women called Scrolls, this group will come to 
the attention of the rest of the campus next week when they present 
a dance, with the cooperation of the Maroon Key. 

The Scrolls is a general honorary service, composed of those 
sophomore women selected on the basis of leadership and scholarship.

SUITCASE SAGA 

A few days ago, having cajoled a fresh- 
man into buying my coffee in return for a 
gyided tour of campus, we walked past the 
Cpllege Pond on our way to the C-store. 

"Look" said he, pointing to a new buHd- 



versity in 1945. 

Each year up to fiftci n women are tapped at the University Hon- 
ors' Coinocation. They are chosen by the incumbents from a group 
of g-irls nominated by all freshman women. 

The main purpose ot this society is to promote scholarship, lead- 
ership, and fellowship among the freshman class in particular. The 
Scrolls, in conjunction with the Maroon Key, the honorary service 

ana guide them through Freshmen Orientation. The night of the 
Big Sisters-Little jSisters Get Together on campus, they present a 
skit in the freshman women's dorms to further welcome the fresh- 
men and to parody their fisrt days on campus. 

However, being a member of this society is not ail work, for 
as leaders of the sophomore class, they are bowed to by the fresh- 
men men and "buttoned" to by the freshmen women. 

The Scrolls work in cooperation with the Maroon Key in most 



North College. I did, and nodded tvisely, al- 
though I was quite positive it had not been 
there the day before. 

"It," I lectured, "-- is in line with the 
new building progi*am currently under way 
whereby Massachusetts will soon rival states 
like Michigan, Arkansas, or possibly even 
Georgia in educational facilities. And there's 
an extra treat for you, my lad; there is the 
president of our school." 

"Where," he demanded. 

"There!" said I, pointing. 

We approached, and the man straight- 
ened up. He wore blue denim coveralls and 



of their functions, which vary throughout the year. They serve the 

university during registration days; they act as ushers at <jqn\{<^c^^ from his pocket extended an aluminum T-

mopped at his forehead. He glanced at us 

and smiled, replaced the bandana, and once 

more bent over his work with the trowel and 

concrete.

New Managerial System 
Presents opportunities 

The/neS) managerial oselection pmgraS as devi^d lasV'spring 



past managers in cooperation with the athletic dept. They realized 
the failings of the existing system clearly. As a result of an insuf- 
ficient amount of publicity stressing the importance of managerial 
■posts, there was a definite lack of enthusiasm in a vast number of 
students. An inefficient and poorly organized method of application 
and selection did not help in attracting students to the open manager- 
ial positions. 

The job of a sports manager is a responsible one and his duties 
manifold. Planning trips, keeping accounts of expenditures, contact- 
ing other colleges, conferring with coaches, handling field practices 
and caring for sports equipment are his main duties. Capability, along 
with enthusiasm, constitute the prime prerequisites for a position.

Frosh Soccer Outlook Good; 
15 Experienced Men Report 



by CHRIS IVUSIC 



The Wellworth Award is a citation given to the athlete of the 
week, the player who in the past week has best exemplified the spirit 
of giving his all. This week a record is being brnken, a new precedent 
established. In the past there has been an occasion when two players 
have tied for the award, but in view of the brilliant showing against 
B.U. last Saturday night and the almost \'isible aura of team spirit 
and play, the award this week goes to the UMass football squad. The 
certificate will be inscribed to the "1956 UMass Football Team" and 
the Wellworth Pharmacy will treat the team to their choice of drinks. 

The coaching staff will not be overlooked either, for it was their 
determination that in the space of a week corrected the deficiencies 
that were so apparent against AIC, and brought the squad up to the 
fighting peak that they showed against the Terriers. The training 
staff is also represented for their fine work in keeping the injury 
prone Redmen in shape to fight one of their finest battles on the 
gridiron.

shown !>y the Redmen against the comparatively gigantic Terrier 
outfit. It is iioth an honor and a privilege to salute the winner of the

Gather round, children, it's 
time to dust oflT the old crystal 
ball for another season. With 
last year's predicted pennant 
winners meeting in the World 
Series, we claim an unbeaten re- 
cord (one of the few in the his- 
tory of UMass) for last spring. 

With neither room nor reason 
to stall, we hereby pick the 
World Champion Brooklyn Dod- 
gera t/) lepeat in six games. The 
Dodgers have the old pros who 
seem to perform the best when 
the chips are down, as the many 
saddened Brave fans have noted 
while crying in their (home- 
p-own) beers. Don Newcombe, 
winner of 27 games and old Sal 
(No-Hit) Maglie give the Bums 
a top notch one-two punch, which 
should be good for three wins 
between them. 



Harriers Have 
High School Stars 

by STEVE NEEDEL 

U spirit and determination 
forecast a successful season, then 
the UMass freshman cross coun- 
try team, under the coaching of 
Bob "Squeaky" Horn, will surely 
aooceed. 

So far, the team hasn't had 
any trials to determine their true 
virtues, but judging from their 
high school records, they should 
do all right. 

Dick Atkinson, from Revere, 
has looked good in pre-season 
trials, while Bill Knowlton, a 
member of last year's Boston 
English team which copped the 
New England track title, and 
Charlie Leverone, a second-se- 
mester freshman who, last 
spring, was a standout on the 
frosh track squad, have been im- 
pressive. 

Two other boys with sparking 
high school careers, Jim Keelon 
of Quincy and Ron Carlson from 
Worcester may pick up some val- 
ualble places this year. Keelon 
was one of the South Shore's 
most versatile runners, while 
Carlson was a member of the 
Worcester North harrier team 
which consistently leads the 
teams from the Worcester area. 

Besides experienced harriers 
Doug Burhoe of Reading, and 
Bob Scott from Mt. Hermon, a 
quintet of novices to the hill-and- 
dale world round out the list. 
They are: Everett Brinson, Great 



Barrington; Don Camp, Belcher- 
to\\Ti; Terry Martin, Worcester; ; 
and a pair of Gloucestcrites,'*' 
Dave Murphy and Hal Mallette.y 




COACH CHARLIE O'ROURKE 



The frosh soccer team conclud- 
ed its first week of practice Fri- 
day under its new mentor, How- 
ard Burns, with a shinta^Tp of 
men. 

Only fifteen frosh have report- 
ed to Coach Bums, a senior ma- 
joring in phys. ed. 

Have Good Experience 

Most of these boys have sound 
experience, however, coming from 
schools with soccer traditions 
.'^uch as Mount Hermon, Spring- 
field Classical, Boston Latin, 
IMonson High, and Williston 
Academy. Bums optimistically 
says, "We should win them all." 

Players like Juris Ozols, center 
forward; Nick Bazos, inside man; 
Bill Harris, left wing; Gerald 
Steinberg and John Moore, full- 
backs; and goalies Dick Williams 
and Dick Scofield are the "nucle- 
us" of the team so far. Other 
l>layers are Jo^n Poignand, Dave 
Brenneke, Bob Neese, Pete Saiza, 
Charles Repeta, Ed Robinson, 
^Martin, and Burton. 

Candidates Needed 

All Coach Bums desires now 



is more candidates in order to 
form two eleven-man teams for 
i n t e r-squad scrimmaging. He 
urges Freshmen to come out for 

the team and for manager. 

Si'iiininages .-o fai' ha\'e been 
with the varsity, wlio Just l)eat 
the Frosh, 1-0, on what was a 
"lucky goal", accordijig to frosh 
players. 

The schedule of five j^ranies pro- 
vides only one home game; on 
Oct. 6 veisus Worcester Acad- 
emy, and home scrimmages with 
Smith School Oct, 2 and with the 
varsity as a season finale. 

About that varsity scrimmage 
Coach Burns' only comment was, 
"We'll give them a good shellack- 
ing, too." 

STAFF MEETING 

There will be an important 
Colli'fiinn staff meeting Wed- 
nesday, Oct. 3rd at 8 p.m. In 
the Cave at Mem Hall. All 
sports staff members are re- 
quested to attend. Editors will 
be elected to fill now vacant 
positions.

The play deals largely with the 
effect of the trials on the lives of 
innocent people. 

Precipitated by two fanaflcal 
ministers, who blame witchcraft 
for various maladies, the hunt 
soon spreads, claiming many vic- 
tims for the hangman. 

Miller, author of the Broadway 
hit Death of a Salesman, relies 
on unusual lighting effects to set 
the mood and furnish scenic ef- 
fects for this play. 

Emphasis is on the plot rather 
than the characters. "The Cruci-

iences on Broadway in 1953. 

Casting and committee selec- 
tions will be held tonight and to-

Legislators To Speak Here Oct. 18 On Sigma Kappa Hearings 



State Senate President Richard I. Fur- 
bush and Representative Sumner Z. Kap- 
lan will speak here at a Collegian-si)on- 
sored open meeting on Thursday, Oct. 18 
at 7:30 in Bowker Auditorium. 

They plan to discuss the report of the 
committee of the General Court investi- 
gating the Sigma Kappa expulsions, Kap- 
lan said. The report will be released on 
Oct. 17, the day before. 

Kaplan, a Democrat from Brookline 
who is seeking re-election, spearheaded the 
formation of the bipartisan committee. 
He is a graduate of UM and was one of 
the sponsors of the Freedom Bill. He is 
completing his first term in the state leg- 
islature. 




:«>: 



Sumner Z. Kaplan (D) 




Richard 



Senate, is a Republican from Waltham. He is running for Sec- 
Furbush, the president of the State retary of State against incumbent Edward J. Cronin. 



Kaplan suggested the formation of the 
committee to investigate the reason for 
the action of national Sigma Kappa in ex- 
pelling chapters at Tufts and Cornell, 
chapters which had planned to initiate 
Negro girls this fall. 

If the reason were found to be discrim- 
ination, Kaplan has said there is a good 
possibility that a bill will be filed to ex- 
clude Sigma Kappa from state-supported 
campuses. 

State House hearings were held on 
Thursday, Sept. 20, when deans from BU, 
MIT and Tufts, and Secretary of UM, 
James W. Burke, testified. 

More hearings scheduled for last 
Wednesday were postponed when repre- 
sentatives from national Sigma Kappa did 
not appear.

Honors Unit To Study 
Hike Of Academic Level 

by MARCIA BEARDSELL 

The subcommittee on scholarship will meet in early 
November to discuss student-faculty suggestions on raising 
the academic level of the school!. 

The subcommittee, formed last spring by Provost Mc- 
Cune, met twice last year and later suggested in an interim 
report : 



HOPKINS TO ASK CAR BAN 
FOR JUN IORS NEXT YEAR 

IVllstees Vote Before Dean's Proposal Takes Effect, 

Prexy Must Accept; Car Squeeze Cited 



1. Holding annual cere- 
monious convocations with 

possible compulsory attendance 
to honor those who have attained 
high academic honoi"8. 

2. Establishing differential 
wage rates fur "scholarly" stu- 
dent work as against dish-wash- 
ing. 

McCune said Friday these are 
preliminary steps in the right 
direction. He noted that the Phi 
Kappa Phi scholars received rec- 
ognition at the opening convoca- 
tion. 

8. Restricting extra curricular 
activities of all students whose 
cumulative or last-semester aver- 
age is below 2.1. 

4. Withdrawing of automobile 
priTileges from all students 



whose cumulative average or 
Idst-semester average was below 
2.L 

5. Admitting on an experimen- 
tal basis i)romising high sihool 
juniors, a p)an successfully adnp- 
ted by. some other colleges. 

6. Pressing for additional 
scholarship funds. 

Provost McCune said that the 
committee and faculty members 
aie trying to do whatever possi- 
ble to increase intellectual mo- 
tivation but in the end the re- 
sponsibility lies with the stu- 
dent. 

The committee has invited ad- 
ministration personnel, faculty 
members and student body to 
attend the November discussions. 



Adlai Raps GOP War 
Claims, Business Ties 

Ending a swift tour of New England Saturday, Adlai 
Stevenson told his Springfield audience that President 
Eisenhower was not responsible for ending the Korean war. 
Stevenson also lashed at GOP leaders as businessmen whose 
"attitude toward America is that of the big boss toward 
the boys." 

He claimed that the war had been ended under the same 
terms proposed by former 



Saturday For 
Union Head 

The Board of Trustees will 
meet here Saturday to vote 
on the administration's re- 
commendation for Student 
Union director. 

Names submitted to the 
trustees are traditionally 

kept secret until the board makes 
a final decision. 

But the administration has 
made no secret who heads its 
preferential list. Provost McCune 
told a Collegian press conference 
Sept. 17 that William D. Scott 
of Texas Technological College 
"stood head and shoulders above 
the other people." 

"I hope we can get him but 
I'm not making any predictions." 

McCune said yesterday the 
trustees will meet at 11 a.m. 
Saturday in Butterfield or the 
Commons, and then take in the 
Homecoming football game and 
other alumni activities. 



Trustees Said Open Sessions 
OK; Chairman Now Unsure 



by JOHN CALLAHAN 

To ease the parking problem, Dean Robert S. Hopkins 
said Friday, he ^vill recommend that starting September 
1957 only seniors be allowed to have cars on campus. Pres- 
ident Mather must approve the recommendation before it 
can be effected. 

Under present restrictions, juniors and seniors and 
students over 21 are permitted to have cars. 

The main reason for the recommendation, the dean 
said, is overcrowded parking facilities. Jammed campus 
driving conditions also led him to propose the cutback, 
Hopkins said. 

The dean, who is privately studying the car problem, 
said he did not know when he would make the recommen- 
dation. 

1660 STICKERS, 1900 PLACES 
According to campus police chief Alexander (Red) 
Blasko, stickers have been issued to 1660 student vehicles 
this semester. 

Blasko estimated the maximum number of parking 
spaces available at about 1900 but added that many of these 
are in the County Circle, where they are not needed. 

He listed as the most critical areas those around the 
men's dorms on Snob Hill, north and south parking areas 
and some faculty lots. 

Senate president pro-tem Lawrence Parrish said the 
student senate also is investigating the traffic problem. 

Senate Gathering Facts 
A traffic committee headed 
by Stanley Merrill is gather- 
ing facts and will probably 
coordinate its findings with 



President Truman 18 
months before the armistice 
was signed. 

[Stevenson suggested earlier in 
the day at Providence, R.I., that 
Stalin's death, whict\ c-ame be- 
tween Eisenhower's inaugura- 
tion four years ago and the sign- 
ing of the treaty, led the Com- 
mu'^sts to agree to an end of 
the war.] 

Thf* Democratic presidential 
candidate also maintaintMi that 
the soldiers who fought Korea 
were most responsible for hal^ 
m^ hostilities.

vi.swl Springfield talk to GOP ties 
with ijig business, and in a major 
^(^iatjon fmrn his prepared text 
tic«€6ti off a list of prr>mincnt Re-

"Big business," he said, "must 
be a servant aoid a partner, and 
not a master." Except for Strven- 
son's first appearance in the 
cfty's Muncipal Auditorium, this 
drew the strongeat applause of 
the cvf^iiiig froca the crowd of 
3200.

With the Board of Trustees meeting here Saturday for 

its second session of the scholastic year, its chairman would 
not aay last night whether the board would oix?n up the 
me<»ting to the public. 

The Ix^gi.slative Research

State Legislature, has reported 
that the trust roos would open 
their sessions if they wore asked. 
Joseph Rartlett, chaiinian of th«> 
board, said last iiip:ht he would

Dean Hopkins, Parri.sh said, 

Merrill said last night that he 
has conferred with Blasko to see 
if cars parked in the congested 
dorm area.s can be moved to little 
used spaces. Areas are available, 
Merrill said, at Lewis, a frosh 
men's dorm and near the orchard 
behind Van Meter. 

Merrill and Dean Hopkins dis-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1956 



Ulljr iHasHarljuBPtta OluUrgtan 

MONDAY EDITION 

With this, the first Monday edition, one 
of the pi-imary steps to a daily Collegian has 
been realized . A dividing line has been 
crossed. This newspaper is now published 
as many school days as it is silent. 

Our university is growing, both in size 
and stature, and one of the most effective 
guages of its growth can be found in the 
area of expression. 

More faculty publication during the past 
year than ever before in the history of the 
university, a new campus magazine sched- 
uled to join the ranks this semester, the pub- 
lication of a third edition of the Collegian; 
all these are indicators of our growth, evi- 
dence that today's student body is helping 
today's faculty plan for a greater school to- 
morrow. 

A great school grows in more than one 
way, more than in pure intellectualism. It 
must mature emotionally and socially as 
well. The structure of the university's 
planned gi'o\vth is apparent. The respon- 
sibility for its emotional and social growth 
rests with the individual underclassman. 
Only by enlarging his responsive horizon can 
he fulfil the obligation to the community 
which he has joined.

McKEON MISUSED 

Three days ago the secretaiy of the Na\T 
overturned a general court-martial ruling 
that S/Sgt. Matthew C. McKeon be dismissed 
from the Marine Corps. The Secretary of 
the Navy Charles S. Thomas reduced the 
recommended sentence of nine months at 
hard labor to three and cancelled McKeon's 
fine. He upheld the military- court's decision 
reducing the sergeant's grade to private so 
that he could not exercise command author- 
ity. 

What should have been obvious through- 
out the trial and circumstances following is 
now more than obvious. It is apparent. No- 
one in the armed services wanted to see Mc- 
Keon punished, for this punisliment would 
have . un del-mined the entire command dis- 
cipline of non-commissioned officers through- 
out the services. 

It is interesting to note that McKeon's 
conviction and sentence carried the head- 
lines on page one in newspapers across the 
country. The secretary of the Navy's recent 
action has gone almost unnoticed in the pub- 
lic's eye.

The Errant Editorialist 

Item: 

Dean Robert S. Hopkins revealed Thursday that he is "about to 
recommend" that only seniors be allowed to have cars on campus 
next year. (Collegian, Friday, Oct. 5, p.4) 

It was with an uncommon measure of apprehension that we re- 
ceived intelligence of the above item; the explicit purport and im- 
plicit effect of its text was to us well-nigh electrifying, and initiated 
currents within our sensibilities which were somewhat disconcerting, 
and nearly acrimonious. Dislodged from our usual disengagement 
from the push and pull of temporal affairs, it is with common alacrity 
that we now take up pen and foolscap to plunge in with unmitigated 
zeal, and with conviction unalleviated, that ours is a voice and opinion 
on this matter which should be heard. 

The reasoning behind this projected maneuver seems rather 
specious to the un jaundiced eye; but let us examine it more closely. 
The dilemma, it would seem, is that the area for immobile installa- 
tion of motor vehicles is reputed to be at a premium, and that the 
roads and by-ways of our university are alleged to be, at certain 
hours of the day, congested to a rather fulsome degree, rather like 
the veins and arteries of a man whose blood is filled with malignant 
humours and odoriferous bile, the flotsam and jetsam of a deteriorated 
metabolism. 

Ijo, the analogy is a rather happy one. and straightway discov- 
ers to the perceiving mind a swift remedial course of action, bearing 
ever in mind the correlated articulation of the corpus h-omin-en and 
the corpus universitasitem. We are not suggesting the rather ready 
and violent procedure enunciated by the venerable Dean. This method 
of banishing in a wholesale manner car after car can be likened to the 
methodology of certain hack physicians who administer emetics, 
purges, and laxatives, etc., to a diseased nietabulism, curing per- 
chance, but leaving behind rack, ruin, and sore organs. Pshaw! ne- 
farious arcana! pernicious nostrum! 

It is rather our view that the human and societal organism re- 
main whole; and while distending and dis-shapemng, perhaps, the 
outward form, we would sooner see a relief of inner congestion by 
enlargement of the inner body cavities. 

The analogy is clear, and follows immediately; if planning pro- 
vided for, say, a parking area proximate to the Student Union edi- 
fice, now a-building, as would have been done in a program informed 
by reason, relief would have been forthcoming. We say again, in 
keeping with our analogy from the healing arts: enlargement of the 
channels, not dilution of the contents. 

Then, i^ther than the constricting vehicular provision envisioned 
by the venerable Dean, allowing SENIORS ONLY (vide item) the 
benefit from motored conveyance, the automotive franchise could 
then bo extended to embrace the mrmbors of the administration and 
faculty and the ubiquitous Officer Blasko, that they might have the 
ways and means of expcditously facilitating their transport.

Sketches .... 

BY SKELLEVGS 

A grey mouse named Leander 
Thought he would take a gander 
At the Socratic World 
Beyond the hole 

I am tired, said Leander 

Who thought he'd take a gander, 

Sick and tired of my 

Living like a mole 

But a big black cat called Trix 
(With lives well over six) 
Gave her coat a couple lix 
And her tail a couple flix 

Her tummy she Leandered 
With the mouse who gandered, 
So the moral of this story 
Becomes : Nix ! 

(Don't ever stick your neck out 
Just for kix.) 



MONDAY HISTORY 

by SAM KAPLAN 

This expansion has come none too soon. If we 
had waited any longer, we might have forgotten its 
history. 

The Collegian was a weekly until 1950, when it 
doubled the number of issues per week, and came 
out on Tuesdays and Fridays until today. 

Expansion has been one of the dreams of the 
paper's editors, who dream as a solace for the frus- 
trations imposed by deadlines, page lengths and 
column rules. 

The Big Push 

But it was not until October 1954, just two years 
ago, that the paper formally swung into position 
for the big push. 

That month, Wendell Cook, a beloved managing 
editor, proposed expansion to three times a week. 

His plans blew up though. Jack Chevalier and I, 
overenthusiastic and premature, suddenly were 
struck with the idea of taking the Collegian to daily 
status. 

That fantastic leap failed, and we say now with- 
out rancor, thank heavens! We simply weren't ready 
then. 

Tribute To Cook 

The failure made us cautious, but we learned 
from the mistakes and marked time until the spring 
of last year. Meanwhile, Cook, whose idea it bad 
been, graduated. 

It was a tribute to Cook that when the idea 
bloomed again last spring it was the tri-we«kly 
rather than the daily the staff decided on. 

It was a tribute to him too that expansion this 
second time was planned with easy confidence, with 
only the "when" important. 

Pub Board Agrees 

So, as last year ended, the staff agreed tentative- 
ly to expansion in mid-October. 

On Sept. 27 this fall the executive committee of 
the paper approved expansion and voted to effect ft 
a week earlier than scheduled, on Monday, Oct. % — 
today. 

Two days later the Publishing Board — the Col- 
leginn^n ultimate governor — gave its nod to the plan. 

Only the approval of the full staflF stood betwi^wi 
twice and thrice weekly. 

Impa.ssp; Then Passes 

And, at the last minute came a Holljnvoodlsh 
cliche: the editor^, could not agree on who would 
work on the Monday paper — which meant Sunday 
work. It was an impasse, and expansion hopes flick- 
ered. I!ut the (^(jitors mndi* arrangements, and they 
tr<H>j)('d down to tlu' staff meeting for the vote. 

It cane on a motion I had long waited to make, 
f(»r Cook, who is now in France, had Noon an inspir- 
ation tn pxcfMlrnrc even when we lacked the needed 
.skill: 

"I move, in the name of Wendell Cook, whose 
idea this was two yrars ago this month, that the 
Coll' (/inn expand to three timv, a week." 

It was passed without tli.ssent, and without much 
worryinu. It w.-i ■ p-itty murh .a matti-r of fact thing. 
Cook would have been glad of that: he disliked un- 
necessary excitement. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1956 



Chisholm Sparks Harriers To 17-36 Win 



by JOHN McATEER 

That "hard times produce g^reat men" proved itself last Satur- 
day afternoon as Coach Bill Footrick's harriers initiated a new cross 
country season with an almost perfect score of 17 points against the 
Ephmen of Williams. 

Reputed to be grossly weakened by the almost legendary 1-2 
punch of "Squeaky" Horn and Will Lepkowski, the youthful group 
of sophs and juniors showed themselves equal to the occasion by beat- 
ing Williams by only one less point than last year. 

Chisholm Leads Pack 

Lee Chisholm, the twelve month a year long-distance runner 
from Maiden, looked like anoth- 



er Horn from Coach Footrick's 
"little giant" bag of tricks. Chis- 
holm won the 4.3 mile event in 



24:43, a bare minute more than 
Horn's time for the course. Don 
Medara, 150 yards behind the co- 
captain, turned in a gratifying

Bartfoot Bny With Cheek," •te.) 



MARKING ON THE CURVE... 
AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT 

Twonkey Crimscott was a professor. Choate Sigafood 
was a sophomore. Twonkey Crimscott was keen, cold, 
brilliant. Choate Sigafoos was loose, vague, adenoidal 
Twonkey Crimscott believed in diligence, discipline, and 
marking on the curve. Choate Sigafoos believed in elves, 
Jayne Mansfield, and thirteen hours sleep each night. 

Yet there came a time when Twonkey Crimscott — 
mentor, sage, and savant — was thoroughly out-thought, 
out-foxed, out-maneuvered, out-ployed, and out-witted 
by Choate Sigafoos, sophomore. 

It happened one day when Choate was at the library 
studying for one of Mr. Crimscott's exams in sociology. 
Mr. Crimscott's exams were murder — plain, flat murder. 
They consisted of one hundred questions, each question 
having four possible answers— A, B, C, and D. The trouble 
was that the four choices were so subtly shaded, so in- 
tricately worded, that students more clever by far than 
Choate Sigafoos were often set to gibbering. 

So on this day Choate sat in the library poring over 
his sociology text, his tiny brow furrowed with concen- 
tration, while all around him sat the other members of 
the sociology class, every one studying like crazy. "What 
a waste!" he thought. "All this youth, this verve, this 
bounce, chained to musty books in a musty library ! We 
should be out singing and dancing and smooching and 
cutting didoes on the greensward!" 

Then, suddenly, an absolute gasser of an idea hit 
Choate. "Listen !" he shouted to his classmates. "Tomor- 
row when we take the exam, let's all — every one of us — 
check Choice 'A' on every question — every one of them.'* 

"Huh?" said his classmates. 

"Mr. Crimscott marks on the curve. If we all check 
the same answers, then we all get the same score, and 
everybody in the class gets a 'C'." 

"Hmm," said his classmates. 

"Let's get out of here and have a ball !" said Choate. 

So they all ran out and lit Philip Morrises and had 
a ball, as, indeed, you will too when you light a Philip 
Morris, for if there ever was a cigarette to lift the spirit 
and gladden the heart, it is today's new Philip Morris- 
firm and pure and fragrant and filled with true, natural, 
golden tobacco, lip end to tip end. 




'WM^^Ife, 



. ..D/^ ^haid be Out ^mm^f!dcl3mn6M^{no(KMr/6^ 



Well sir, the next morning the whole class did what 
Choate said and, sure enough, they all got "C's," and they 
picked Choate up and carried him on their .shoulders and 
sang "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow" and plied him with 
sweetmeats and Philip Morris and girls and put on 
buttons which said "I DOTE ON CHOATE." 

But they were celebrating too soon. Because the next 
time shrewd old Mr. Crimscott gave them a test, he gave 
them only one question — to wit: write a 30,000 word 
essay on "Crime Does Not Pay." 

"You and your ideas," they said to Choate and tore 
off his epaulets and broke his sword and drummed him 
out of the school. Today, a broken man, he earns a meager 
living as a camshaft in Toledo.

UM— Five of First Six 

Cool and lanky Tarn Flynn of 
Natick floated up to the finish 
line with all the calm of one 
late for an 8 o'clock non-credit 
course. He was third for UMass. 

Williams took fourth position, 
fouling up the ideal 15 point to- 
tal. 

"Mouse" Leonard of Arling- 
ton took fifth to give the Red- 
men four out of the first five 
places. 

Erik Dahl, last year's fresh- 
man strongman, finished fifth for 
the Umies in sixth place. 

Williams then placed four men 
whose block strength would have 
won the race had one of the UM 
runners slipped. 

Rich Prouty and Dave Hjerpe 
pulled in next before the remain- 
der of the Williams guests fin- 
ished the field. 

Certainly, it was a tremendous 
performance by a green group 
and an encouragement to Coach 
Footrick. 

Work Cut Out 

The boys have their work cut 
out for them to defend last 
year's team record of a first in 
the Connecticut Valley Confer-

ference, and third in the New 
Englands. 

Saturday's performance might 
start us dreaming of even better 
than last year.

Briggsmen Repeat 1-1 Thriller; 
UMies Held In Overtime; 
Sutcliff Shines As Goalie 



by BILL CROTTY 



UMass inaugfurated the home 
season Saturday with a real 
thriller. Playing strong and ag- 
gressive ball the Redmen were 
held to a 1-1 tie by a tireless 
and surprisingly strong W.P.L 
eleven. 

From the opening gun both 
teams gave it their all. Through- 
out the first quai-ter the Umiea 
kept the ball, for the most part, 
deep in the visitor's territory. 

The second quarter found the 
teams playing more on an even 
keel. With about 10 minutes 
gone, UMass broke down the field 
on a well-executed, split-second 
timing play that would have been 
a sure goal except for a superb 
stop by the Worcester goalie. 

Within three minutes the Red- 
men were hack knocking down 
the doors of the goal. Here, on 
two successive boots the goalie 
made two more outstanding 
saves. Near the end of the half 
Joe Morrone, who played a 
steady game all afternoon, set up 
a play which saw the ball screech- 
ing across the goal mouth. 

Mitch Fingold came out of 
nowhere, caught up with it and 
sent a high, hard shot into the 
upper corner of the net that 
didn't give the bewildered goalie 
a chance to intercept. 

After intermission the Redmen 
and W.P.L took turns holding 
the ball in each other's zone. 

Both teams missed a lot of 
opportunities for breaking the 
game wide open._ Lyn Sutcliff, 
who did an outstanding job in the 
goalie position, took out two 
W.P.I, players during one fast 
break, with a block that would

make even Charlie O'Rourke jea- 
lous. 

The play in the last quarter 
was tense and bitter. Sutcliflf 
stopped two breakaways, but af- 
ter a little roughousing action 
outside the goal crease, W.P.I, 
was awarded a penalty shot. 

On the shot, the ball was de- 
flected and almost cleared out, but 
in the scramble a W.P.I, lineman 
caught up with it in center-field 
and sent a high hard kick into 
the comer that Sutcliff didn't 
have a chance to stop. 

UMass went all out to break 
tha tie and win their first game, 
but luck wasn't with them. The 
kicks were just missing, and 
their drives were being broken 
up just short of the goal. 

Two five minute overtimes pro- 
duced some ferocious playing, 
and near the end players were 
falling left and right. At one 
point there was one Redman in- 
jured on the field and one W.P.I. 
player out cold. 

In the p"d the score remained 
1-1 and the Umies got a well- 
deserved and dearly bought tie. 
Both teams played well and even- 
ly and treated the assembled 
fans to a great afternoon's enter- 
tainment. 



Frosh Booters 
Take Opener 

Juris Ozols started the frosh 
soccer team off on the right foot 
Saturday with his own right shoe 
as he booted teammate Nick Baz- 
os' rebound past the Worcester 
Academy goalie at point-blank 
range after three minutes of 
play in the first quarter. 
Redmen Press Attack 

The iittio Redmen wasted no 
time In pressing the attack, 
building up a 2-0 lead from 
which their opponents from 
Worcester could not recover. 

Although the Worcester lads 
kept up a steady offensive at- 
tack, UMass goalie Dick Wil- 
liams turned away all their scor- 
ing thrusts. Several times Wil- 
liams grabbed the loose ball 
right from under the feet of Wor- 
cester players waiting to bang it 
home. The half ended with UMasa 
leading 1-U. 

Bazos Scores Clincher 

In the second half, both teams 
kept up a fast offensive game 
with action moving from one 
goal to the other. But late in the 
third period, a Worcester de- 
fenseman blocked a Umie kick 
with his hands, and a penalty 
shot was called. Nick Bazos, Red- 
man inside man, put the shot 
into the goal to sew up the vic- 
tory. 

UMass Switches Tactics 

The Redmen then switched 
their tactics to pursue a defens- 
ive game, double-teaming Wor- 
cester forwards while keeping on- 
ly two or three Redmen forwards 
up in enemy territory. The Wor- 
ccstorites managed to control the 
ball for the rest of the game, but 
could not marshall a scoring 
thrust to penetrate the strength- 
ened Umie line of defense.

$9400 Grant To Aid Hormone Study 
By Physiology Prof James Snedecor 



A $9,400 grant has been 
awarded to James G. Snede- 
cor, professor of physiology 
here, by the National Institute 
of Arthritis and Metabolic Dis- 
eases. 

Snedecor will study glucagon, 
a relatively new hormone discov- 
ery, and its effect upon muscle. 



No practical use for the hormone 
has been determined. 

Glucagon, the professor ex- 
plained last night, is a substance 
secreted by the pancreas which 
tends to increase the sugar con- 
tent of the body, in contrast to 
insulin. 

He is presently investigating 
the effect of glucagon on the iso- 



lated rat diaphragm. 

On the faculty of the univer- 
sity since 1948, Snedecor re- 
ceived a B.S. from Iowa State 
College and a Ph.D. from Indi- 
ana University. 

He is a member of Sigma Xi, 
the American Society of Zoolo- 
gists, and has published many 
articles in scientific journals.

Public Won H 
Be Allowed 
At Meeting 

The m<?etinf? of the Board of 
Trustees which will take place 
here oii Saturday will not be open 
to the public. 

The Legislative Research 
Council said recently that "the 
Trustees of the University of 
Massachusetts stated that they 
would open their sessions to the 
public if asked to do so." 

The CoHegi'tn asked chainnan 
of the Board, Jiustiih Bartlett, 
to allow reporters at the meetintc. 
He was asked twice and refused 
both times. 

Bartlett said last ni^ht that 
the meeting will he- closrd usiless 
other members of the Board re- 
quest that it be opened. 

The meeting will be held to 
vote on the administration's rec- 
ommendation for Student Union 
director as well as appointments 
of other personnel. 



Cornell SK 
Informed Of 
Secret Visit 

The "Cornell Daily Sun" re- 
vealed last week that the nation- 
al president of Sigma Kappa 
made a secret visit to the Corn- 
ell chapter last spring shortly 
after the chapter had pledged a 
Negro. 

The "Sun" published a letter 
sent to the Cornell chapter by 
nine alumnae of Sigrma Kappa 
which stated that the national 
was unfair in its dealings with 
the Alpha Zeta chapter. 

"For five years Alpha Zeta has 
sought a clear, definite state- 
ment from Council as to SK's 
policy regarding the qualifica- 
tions of girls for rushing and 
membership." 

The letter continued that Coun- 
cil had never sent a definite an- 
swer. Therefore, Alpha Zeta 
pledged a Negro giid. 

Secret Visit 

"The only evidence of . . . con- 
cern was a secret visit to Ithaca 
of the national president to pres- 
sure one of Alpha Zeta's alum- 
nae into forcing the active chap- 
ter to reverse its action. The 
president refused to allow any 
active or alumna, or any college 
official, to know that she was in 
Ithaca." 

The letter also stated that 
there was no discussion of Alpha 
Zeta's action at the convention. 
The Cornell girls had no oppor- 
tunity to present their case. 
They were not questioned until 
after the convention and did not 
know they were suspended until 
they received a notice in July. 

Star Chamber Procedure 

"The decision to suspend these 
chapters by 'star chamber' pro- 
cedure leads us to the conclusion 
that any chapter is open to simi- 
lar suspension. By what strange 
deviation of power can a coun- 
ciling body ... sit in judicial ca- 
pacity and sentence any member 
or chapter?" 

The letter questions the right 

of five councilors to speak for 

an organization with thousands 

of members and alumnae. The

UConn Raid Doggone Unsuccessful, But 
Ending Blue For Cage Front Door, Sig Ep 



Stop Raids 
Warns Dean 

by JOHN CALLAHAN 

Drastic action will follow 
future inter-campus inci- 
dents, Dean Robert S. Hop- 
kins told a special meeting 
of student leaders yesterday, 
just 14 hours after Univer- 
sity of Connecticut students 
invaded UM. 

Their early morning assault 
had been a retaliation for the 
theft of the UConn mascot, a 
husky named Jonathan, stolen 
over the weekend by the UMass 
Sigma Phi Epsilon chapter. 

Describing the raid damage as 
"significant", Hopkins said "we 
must get together with UConn to 
see who does what about the de- 
struction." 

Meeting With UConn 

He is meeting today with ad- 
ministrative and student officials 
from the Connecticut .state uni- 
versity. 

The dean declined to specify 
what kind of punishment the ad- 
ministration might take against 
students involved in later raids, 
but he warned the meeting that 
fraternities would now have to 
answer for such actions. 

Present at the suddenly-called 
meeting were 12 fraternity pres- 
idents, and the presidents of 
Adclphia, the Inter-Fratemity 
Council, Maroon Key and the 
Student Senate. 

Expulsion Not Solution 

But Hopkins assured them that 
expulsion, the usual penalty for 
such incidents at other schools, 
was not the solution tn the prob- 
lem. 

He said he hoped the admin- 
istration would not be forced to 
restrain students with the threat 
of expulsion. 

The dean said he felt the issue 
was initiated in a "fraternal at- 
mosphere," and cited last year's 
theft of the University of Rhode 
Island's pet ram by a group of 
UM Theta Chi's. 

Students Morally Responsible 

"As student leaders, you have 
a legal and moral responsibility 
to prevent this sort of trouble," 
the dean told the assembly. 

Hopkins said ho had been as- 
sured that the stolen UConn mas- 
cot was being returned to Storrs, 
the site of the UC campus. He 
said there would be no punish- 
ment for the theft by the Sig Ep 
house. 



MII^ITARY BALL 

The annual Military Ball will

non, stated that one of New Kng

He added that fraternity, so- 
rority, and dormitory nominations 
for honorary colonel of the ball

"Many of the rushees left be-

insulted by these men," Reimann 
was reported as saying. 

He was also reported as stat-

Mutt Returned 
On Dean's Say 
After Invasion 

by SAM KAPLAN 

Storrs, Conn., Oct. 10 — Uni- 
versity of Connecticut security 
police said early this morning 
they were "expecting" a raid 
by University of Massachu- 
setts. 

At 2 a.m. they reported no 
sign of invaders. 

About 200 UConn students 
stormed the UMass campus 
just after midnight Tuesday 
morning in a futile search for 
Jonathan IV, the Connecticut 
mascot husky. 

Jonathan IV was returned 
here Tuesday afternoon by or- 
der of UM Dean of Men, Rob- 
ert S. Hopkins. 

The dog was lured Sunday 
from the UC campus by broth- 
ers of UMass' Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon chapter one week before 
the Massachusetts Homecom- 
ing Day football game with 
UConn. 
Around 175 University of 
Connecticut raiders abandoned a 
search of UM's fraternity row 
at 2:45 a.m. Tuesday without 
finding their stolen school mas- 
cot. 

Before they left, partly under 
police escort, they 

—burned a "UC" on Alumni 
Field; 

— .splashed school blue paint 
on the front doors of the Cage; 
— wrote "UConn" in white 
paint, the contrasting school col- 
or, on the walk in front of the 
Cage; 

— (laul)od two Drill Hall bulle- 
tin boards with "UConn" and 
"C", both in blue; 

— splattered North Pleasant 
St. with blue; 

— jostled about Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon's front lawn until they were 
disi>ersed by the arrival of about 
12 policemen; 

— chopped off the flag pole of 
the Sig Ep house; 

— broke into Theta Chi, but 
damaged nothing; 

— unscrewed the QTV ft.ag 
from its pole socket, unhinged

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDESDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1956

WE'RE STILL 
STANDING . . . 

This is a quote from an editorial carried 
by the Collegian in the issue of December 3, 
1954, referring to the conditions in the Snack 
Bar. 

"More than a month ago we took note 
of the situation and made a few amateur 
suggestions. We suggested making up cold 
sandwiches ahead of the rushes, organizing 
the help effectively, and, as a last resort, 
moving the cash register to the middle in 
an effort to speed up service." 

The idea of preparing sandwiches has 
been carried out. Moving the register to the 
middle has not been tried. But certainly, we 
must again stress the need for organization 
of help. 

Nobody is ever sure whether or not the 
grill will be open. The standard answer is 
"Not unless someone comes in to work it." 
It seems that a schedule could be set up 
which would have some meaning, rather 
than having help arrive simply when it is 
convenient to them. 

The blame lies actually, not with the 
help, but rather with the management. The 
cash register line and the coffee line have 
fused into one, with the result that many 
poor innocents who simply wish to pay for 
their sandwiches or frappes are herded be- 
hind a line of coffee drinkers who are wait- 
ing to be served. The same person is often 
responsible for both the register and the 
coffee service. 

A practical suggestion seems to be : Why 
not develop some means to divide the two 
lines, and thus speed up service all around? 
Perhaps the answer would be a move of the 
register. If the register were placed in the 
middle with one person to operate it, an ef- 
fective system might be developed. A sep- 
arate line for coffee could then be set up, 
heading towards the register from one end. 
The other line, for sandwiches and fountain 
services would begin at the opposite end and 
work towards the register. 

We do not aim to set up a management 
system for the Snack Bar. We only want to 
point out some of the blaring faults. Will 
we have to wait another two years for some 
action.

MAROON KEY Machmer Slated 



HOSTS TEAMS 

by ELLIE MATHESON 

The Maroon Key will be much in evidence at Homecoming this 
weekend, for it will be this group who constructs the rally bonfire 
and supervises the Rope Pull Saturday afternoon. 

White hats bearing the maroon symbol of the key are familiar 
on this campus. The men wearing them are members of the sopho- 
more Honor Society of UMass. 

The Key, like the other honorary societies of the school, serve 
at various functions throughout the calendar year. They co-sponsor, 
with the Scrolls, the orientation program of freshmen in the fall. 
In this period, they also take charge of bonfires for rallies, and aid 
in many of the activities of Homecoming Weekend. 

TO SPONSOR SPEAKER 

Throughout the year, members of the Key act as hosts to all visit- 
ing athletic teams. In conjunction with the Scrolls, they assist on 
High School Day, International Weekend, and Speakers Weekend. 
This will feature a well known lecturer, obtained by the profits from 
the Registration Dance. 

The group, originally composed of fifteen members, celebrates 
its thirtieth anniversary this year, having been founded here in 1926. 

Potential qualities of leadership are the main considerations in 
selecting members of the sophomore society. Twenty-five new Key 
are tapped annually at the Honors Convocation each spring by the 
incumbents. 

Members of the Key pledge themselves to ambition, leadership, 
and intei'est in the organization itself. They stand ready to assist 
in programs designed to strengthen all phases of student I'fe. 



The Land of JAZZ 

(Second in a Series of Articles) 

Those readers who have had occasion to hear the Dave 
Brubeck Quartet will agree that here indeed is one of the 
finest jazz foursomes of our times, sparked by the piano 
stylings of Mr. Bpubeck. 

This group employs improvisation to a degree unpar- 
alleled by any other moderns today. Aside from "set" be- 
ginnings and endings, Brubeck and his sidemen improvise 
or "go out" with a daring and abandon that has never been 
attempted by other musicians. While bassist Bob Bates and 
drummer Joe Dodge lay down a solid beat, pianist Brubeck 
and alto-saxaphonist Paul Desmond exchange choruses and 
chords. This develops into an integrated two-part flight of 
fancy against the omni-present pulse of the bass and drums. 

Brubeck has defined jazz as ". . . an improvised music 
based on European harmony and African rhythms. The 
challenge is to improvise on a known theme, using with 
taste the most advanced ideas of our times without losing 
the drive and rhythmic complexity of early jazz." Although 
both Dave and Paul introduce elements of classiciil music, 
such as fugues and question and answer duets, the jazz 
beat is never lost. Here the listener feels the preservation 
of the original theme in jazz, the rhythm.

For Mock Openings 

by LOUISE SMITH 

The drab, gray building behind South College 
will soon give up its students to a shiny new edi- 
fice in the middle of the campus. 

No more will students roam the cardboard halls 
of L. A. and mount the sagging stairs only to en- 
ter colorless, unventilated and poorly lighted class- 
rooms. No more will they be able to look out the 
windows to the east and see the wonders of an 
agricultural college there before them. No more 
will unsuspecting freshmen search for L. A., Rm. 
3 only to discover that someone forgot to number 
the classroom. , 

To House Offices 

The days of Sociology, Math and Philosophy 
classes in the Engineering building are gone. Despite 
all pessimistic prophecies, Machmer Hall WILXi 
open its shiny new doors to anxious students in 
the Liberal Arts school. 

This new building has 62 offices, 42 classrooms, 
6 seminar and ten conference rooms. Eighteen of 
the classrooms seat 30, eighteen have a capacity 
of 40 and 6 of them will hold 50. 

Some to Move 

The departments of German and Philosophy will 
take over offices on the ground floor in Machmer. 
The first floor will be devoted to Government and 
Romance Languages. The Mathematics and Educa- 
tion departments will occupy the second floor with 
Sociology and Economics having offices on the third. 
The other departments will remain in the same of- 
fices they now occupy and will use the new building 
for classes only. 

This new building is a study in color. One has 
only to walk through its multi-colored classrooms 
to realize this. The colors range from pink, yellow 
and gray to blue, green and tan. The light fixtures 
give an added touch of color. A few of the more 
outstanding color combinations are blue walls with 
red lights, yellow with green, blue with brown and 
green with red. 

More Confusion? 

And so we add another MH building to the cam- 
pus. The totAl now is three, Marshall Hall, Mem 
Hall and Machmer Hall. To add to the general 
registrational confusion, the new building has iden- 
tically numbered classrooms in the East and West 
wings. Only the initial E or W before the number 
will save you from much confusion. 

Machmer Hall will be open to the public for in- 
spection Homecoming week-end. There is still some 
work to do on the building before it will open to 
students but, probably, it will open for classes in 
the middle of next week. 



Brubeck is said to lean to the polytonal, but much 
of his work is truly atonal. He employs the use of 
two or more keys at the same instant. He has the 
touch of the concert pianist and quite often his im- 
provisation produces sounds imlike the "jazz" that 
is expected. However, these elements are always 
introduced in the course of free improvisation 
against the strong jazz background. 

Bom in Concord, California in 1920, Dave did 
most of his studying with Darius Milhaud at Mills 
College in Oakland, where he received his M.A. de- 
gree. While serving with the army in Europe in 
1944 and 1945, he organized his own band. Upon 
discharge, a new group was formed known as "The 
8". It wa.s while playing with this octet that Bru- 
beck was noticed by disk jockey Jimmy Lyons. 
Shortly after this, Dave and the rhythm section 
from this original group became the Dave Brubeck 
Trio. This was in 1949, and since 1951 he has main- 
tained the Brubeck Quartet, which has won polls 
in both Metronome and Doumbeat. 

The name of Brubeck has been forged into the 
annals cf mode-n jaw. Together with his sidemen 
he will further the growing institution of progres- 
sive jazz, and make even greater innovationa in thii 
new school of musical thought. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDESDAY, OCTOBER 10. 1956 



Goalie Sutcliffe 
Wins WW Award 



The third Wellworth Award of the fall goes to one of 
the outstanding players in Saturday's soccer game with 
W.P.I.— goalie Lee Sutcliffe. 

Because the game ended in a 1-1 tie, it's easy to see 
that both goalies were on their toes throughout the battle. 
Time and again the two teams missed opportunities to break 
the game wide open. 

Sutcliffe shined on a W.P.I, breakaway. Wrote 
Collegian reporter Bill Crotty: "Sutcliffe took out two 
W.P.I, players during one fast break with a block that 
would have made even Charlie O'Rourke jealous." 

FRUSTRATES ENGINEiERS' THRUSTS 

That wasn't all the action that Lee saw before the 
game was over. Twice in the last quarter, when every sec- 
ond counted, Sutcliffe shattered WPI scoring thrusts and 
kept UMass hopes alive. 

Later the Engineers scored on a rebound from a pen- 
alty kick and forced the game into extra periods. For two 
overtimes Sutcliffe frustrated WPI. When the final whistle 
blew, there was no doubt who would win this week's award. 

SHINING REBUFF 

Sutcliffe is a shining rebuff to those people who think 
that years of soccer experience are necessary for a player 
to become a great goalie, for he never played a game of soc- 
cer in his life until he started college. That's all the more 
reason why Sutcliffe is Wellworth choice of the week. 

A six-foot, 165-pound senior from Onset, he attended 
Wareham High and Tabor Academy, was a three-sport ath- 
lete and captained the basketball team. 

Sutcliffe will receive the usual Wellworth prize of mer- 
chandise and gift certificate.

THE MURAL MIRROR 



The Intramural season is 
under way, and from all indica- 
tions, the race for the inter-fra- 
ternity championship promises to 
be one of the closest in years. 
Through last Monday night, four 
teams: SAE, LCA, TEP, and 
SPE, were tied for firat place. 
All four teams have identical 
records of 2-0. Following close 
behind is PSK with a 1-0 record. 

From where we sit, it looks 
like the champion will be one of 
these five clubs. It could be any 
one of them, but we'll still stick 
with out pre-season choice of 
SAE. 

Although TC lost their initial 
contest to LCA, they cannot be 
overlooked. They made a fine 
showing in losing by a score 
of 12-8. Just a hunch, but don't 
be surprised if they finish very 
close to the top. 

Here are the results and stand- 
ings through Monday night:

Ten teams make a go at it 
tonight, as the inter-fraternity 
league shifts into high gear. 

TKE squares off with LCA at 
6:30 . . . we rate this game a 
toss up. At the same time LCA 
meets PMD . . . Lambda Chi 
should have little trouble here. 

At 7:15 TEP plays QTV . . . 
TEP by a touchdown. PSK is ra- 
ted a slight favorite over KS, 
who lost to pre-season favorite 
SAE by a touchdown last Mon- 
day. 

SAE is scheduled to take on 
ASP at 8 . . . again we go along 
with SAE in an easy one. 

Something new has been added 
to the intramural scene this 
year: the presence of a third 
official on the field. The third man 
is very beneficial in that he helps 
to move the game along faster 
and now, one of the referees 
doesn't have to run around with

the time clock at the same time 
that he watches the players. Al- 
ready a few of the teams have 
commented on the better playing 
conditions with the presence of 
a thrd main to help officiate. 

This year we have initiated a 
new policy of covering the "Game 
of the Week". Barry Friedman 
will handle this end of the col- 
umn. This week we featui-e the 
Nose Bowl Game between TEP 
and AEPi.

TEP SCORES 20-0 
WIN OVER AEPi 
IN MURAL GAME 

by BARRY FRIEDMAN 

The annual "Nose Bowl" game 
proved to be slightly one-sided 
last Monday night, as TEP de- 
feated AEPi 20-0. 

TEP, coached by Paul Bennett, 
took complete control from the 
opening whistle and ran the score 
to 14-0 at the end of the first 
half. On only the second play of 
the game, Jerry Goldman scored 
on a 30 yard pass-play from Skip

(Continued from page 1) 
Henri Picard at 3:30 a.m to in- 
sist the dog be returned. 

Picard immediately called 
UConn and made arrangements 
"to expedite the mutt." 

Town police had been tipped 
oflf on the raid by police who had 
stopped the 18- or 19-car motor- 
cade along the invasion route 
from Storrs, 50 miles away. 

Northampton State Police Bar- 
racks sent eight troopers to cam- 
pus at 1:30 a.m. "to establish or- 
der." 

"There was no big scene," state 
police said last night. "There 
could have been trouble but there 
wasn't." 

The troopers returned to the 
barracks at 2:30 a.m., about the 
time the last of the UConn for- 
ces departed. 

The caravan's last two cars, 
filled with staff members of the 
alerted student paper at UConn, 
the Daily Campus, were escort- 
ed from town by two police cars, 
one a state trooper's. 

An editor of the Daily Cam- 
pus said last night he believed 
most of the damage had been 
caused by an advance contingent 
of seven UC students. 

Janitors at the Cage spent all 
Tuesday scrubbing the blue- 
smeared door.

Float Parade 
Tonight Starts 
Big Weekend 

by BARBARA BURKE 

The kickoflF for the annual 
Homecoming Weekend will take 
place tonight at 6:30 p.m. when 
a torchlight parade of over twen- 
ty imaginative floats, led by the 
Redmen band, the coed drill team 
and the cheerleaders will parade 
through the center of Amherst to 
Alumni Field. 

Fraternities, sororities, and 
dormitories will compete for the 
best homecoming float. There will 
be three judges who will judge 
twice during the parade. The five 
criteria on which each float will 
be judged are: originality, parti- 
cipation, composition, overall ef- 
fect, and ability to inspire the 
team. 

Fire Protection Necessary 

Houses are once again remind- 
ed to have either sand or a fire 
extinguisher on their floats and 
to have the name of the house 
clearly shown on the front. 

The floats will line up in three 
groups: 

Line Up In 3 Groups

Ellis Drive between the lights: 
K.A.T., T.K.E., Leach, T.C., Lew- 
is, CO., Thatcher. 

Deadline Is 6 P.M. 

The floats must be in those 
groups by 6 p.m. and participants 
on the floats by 6:15 p.m. The 
position of each float in the 
group will be determined as to 
the time that each one arrives. 

At Alumni Field following the 
parade the traditional rally and 
bonfire will be held. The winners 
of the float competition will be 
announced, and Judy Anderson, 
a sophomore from Wobum, will 
be crowned homecoming queen. 
Dance Will Follow Rally 

The Homecoming Dance spon- 
sored by Mortar Board and Adel- 
phia will be held in the Cage fol- 
lowing the rally. 

Highlight of the weekend will 
be the UConn-UMass football 
game at Alumni Field Saturday 
at 2 p.m. At half time the re- 
turning graduates will witness a 
special homecoming precision 
routine by the band and precia- 
ionettes. 

Soccer Game and High 
School Day 

Sororities and fraternities will 
hold open house for alumni Sat- 
urday afternoon and evening. 

Other events of the weekend 
include a soccer game Saturday 
morning and the annual high 
school day for visiting high 
school students.

The University Debating Society will sponsor a cam- 
pus-wide mock presidential election on Oct. 31. 

Two gi'oups are being organized on campus to align 
members of the Democratic and Republican parties. The 
function of these groups is to provide information about 
their respective parties and to organize student interest in 
the workings and policies of the parties. 

The Young Democrats met for the first time on Wednes- 
day evening to discuss campaign techniques. The Youth For 
Eisenhower will hold their kick-off meeting next Wednes- 
day evening, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m. in the lounge of Leach. Each 
group will campaign for support of their presidential candi- 
date choice. They will also hold meetings and attend politi- 
cal rallies in the surrounding areas. 

Three weeks of campaigning efforts will be culminated 
in a centralized mock election. Stockbridge students have 
been invited to join the two student political organizations 
and to take part in the all-campus mock election. 

Mather Greets Senators 
Upon Return From Japan 



by LOIS LESTAN 

In an informal speech to the 
Senate Wednesday, President 
Mather pledged his whole heart- 
ed cooperation to the Senate and 
t?ie students of the campus. 

The president announced that 
he would be in his office on cam- 
pus this year more than the last 
two years to become more ac- 
quaintrd with the students and 
the existing problems. 

Aid A Campaign Issue 

In expressing approval that 
aid for the university is a bi-par- 
tisan issue in the election cam- 
paigns this year, Mather said 
that it is the first time in the 
history of the state that the 
matter has become a part of par- 
ty platforms. 

The major policy problems in 
the State Legislature have been 
solved since the passage of the 
Freedom Bill, the president add- 
ed. 

New Grant To University 

In addition to the requested 
sum from the legislature, Math- 
er announced that an additional 
$250,000 has been granted to the 
university. 

This has enabled the admin- 
istratVin to hire professors above 
the minimum rate of pay. 

Will Attend Meeting 

Concerned with the problem of 
discrimination in fraternities, the 
president announced that he 
would attend the meeting Thurs- 
day with Senator Furbush and 
Rep. Sumner Z. Kaplan on the 
issue. 

No Comment on Traffic 

The president rendered a "no 
coninirnt" on the traffic problem 
in that he had not as yet had 
opportunity to investigate it. 



In closing his talk, Mather 
complimented Provost McCuno 
on the latter's handling of the 
internal affairs of the campus 
in the president's absence. 



Mather Backs 
Trustee Stand 

President Mather, back from 
Japan, stood firm this week be- 
hind the decision of the chair- 
man of the Board of Trustees to 
keep tomorrow's board meeting 
secret. 

The president also declared 
that any state law forcing the 
meetings open would be upheld 
but would be ineffective. 

To Hold Executive Meeting 

"The board would hold an ex- 
ecutive meeting the night before 
the public meeting, and then tell 
only what it wanted known," 
Mather said. 

This is what the trustees of 
Michigan State University do, 
Mather claimed. 

No Reporter Coverage 

He backed up Chairman James 
E. Bartlett's pronouncement Tues- 
day that he would not permit re- 
porters to cover the session here 
at 11 a.m. tomorrow unless he 
was asked to by boa id niomljers. 

Bartlett said earlier he had 
not heard that the trustees had 
said they would open their meet- 
ings if they were asked, as main- 
'nino<l in :i report of the Legis- 
lative Research Council. 

Director To Be Chosen 

Tomorrow's meeting will de- 
cide on the administration's rec- 
uniiiHndation for Student Union 
director, whose name has not 
been released. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 12, 1956 



Class Of 1957 Can 
Prevent Car Ban 

The ever-present strings of the legis- 
lature are snarling the university to a dead 
stop once more, this time in the face of a 
problem that is amounting to an emergency. 
The automobile problem is again arous- 
ing anger and heated discussion among the 
student body. 

A hint of the desperateness of the situa- 
tion was recently revealed by Dean Hopkins 
when he disclosed that he may have to rec- 
ommend that only seniors be allowed to have 
cars next year. 

How does this concern Boston? 
The problem is parking space. A look 
at the master plan shows that space for new 
lots is available and already set aside. But, 
of course the money isn't available. The 
money is supposed to come from Boston. Not 
only that, but our money goes to Boston. 

The Student Senate Traffic Committee 
and other individauls on campus have pro- 
posed that the students pay a relatively small 
fee for parking privileges to which no ob- 
jection could be expected. 

But the money collected by such a meth- 
od, by law, would have to go to the State 
-General Fund and could not be earmarked 
for the purpose for which it was collected. 
In fact, it probably would not even get back 
to the university — at least in the near future. 
Funds appropriated from Boston is the 
ethical answer but it is not the practical an- 
swer. 

WE CANNOT WAIT 

By September, 1967, it is possible to have 
greatly expanded parking facilities here in 
the form of a new parking lot. 

Money is the first problem. There are at 
Jeast two solutions to this. 

First, the Student Senate could designate 
a tax — worked out so that only car-owning 
students pay it. A referendum, according 
to Student Senate law, would be necessary. 
The quirk in this solution is that it may take 
too much time, but the emergency nature of 
the problem could, and should, cut down 
some of the red tape. 

The second solution and the one that 
seems superior to us involves the use of 
money that could be available immediately. 

The class of 1957 met yesterday morn- 
ing to discuss many things, among them, the 
class gift to the university. President Wil- 
liam Mahoney revealed that $3500 from the 
bulging class treasury is available for the 
gift. 

A parking lot to meet a present and fu- 
ture uinversity emergency need could stand 
as a lasting memorial to a class President 
Mather has called 'the best I have ever seen." 

The procedure, after the class agreed to 
such a gift, would not be as difficult as one 
would think. First the Board of Trustees — 
assured beforehand of the verity of the emer- 
gency by Dean Hopkins — would designate 
one of the many spaces already set aside in 
the master plan. 

If immediate action is taken, the class 
gift — one that is important, lasting and vi- 
tally necessary — could be ready to join the 
farewells to the class of 1957 almost before 
they have even become alumni. 

The conmiittee should meet immediately, 
consider the idea and have a concrete (or 
asphalt as the case may be) proposal to pre- 
sent at the next class meeting which will be 
held within three weeks.

Hi Homecomers 



Letters Propose Cures For 
Mobbed Traffic Conditions 

To the Editor: 

Here we go again. The problem of student auto- 
mobiles has reared it ugly a-nd unnecessary head 
so often in the past that those who have been forced 
to suffer are more than numb. We are practically 
immune. 

Why in the name of reason woii't the adminis- 
tration, the Senate, the Collegian, and the student 
body face the fact? We have enough space on this 
campus to allow every student, freshman or senior, 
who desires and can afford it to have an automo- 
bile. The problem isn't merely space; it is space in 
such condition as to take a number of vehicles with- 
out collapsing. This means grading, surfacing, and 
hard-top. It means money. 

The administration has consistently taken the 
position that money for expanded parking facilities 
must come from the General Court of the Common- 
wealth in Boston. If this University had waited 
for Boston all its life it would still be Mass. Aggie. 
The Alumni Building Corporation by building new 
dormitories forced to some extent the legislature 
to keep up with other buildings. We have been wait- 
ing on Boston for a library addition for so long 
that by the time we get it we will need another. 
If we wait on Boston for parking lots we will all 
be walking all the time within two years. 

Any student who can afford an automobile and 
all the expenses that such entails can afford to pay 
a small fee each semester for the right of a campua 
parking sticker. 

And if each of the 1600 students who now have 
cars registered on campus had paid only $2.00 for 
the right, there would be $3200.00 available for ex- 
panded parking facilities. This in just one semester. 

Of course it isn't so simple. The Board of Trus- 
tees, the legislature in Boston, the administration, 
and the student body must get together on this issue. 

But the time has come for concrete proposals 
and hard cooperative thought. The time for merely 
imposing further limitations has long since passed.

To the Editor: 

In last Monday's issue of the Collegian, there 
appeared the definite plans of Dean Hopkins, which 
had been hinted at previously. The Dean has come 
to the conclusion that the University campus is 
not big enough for the members of the two upper 
classes to have their vehicular transportation on 
campus. 

. . . But, I believe that there are many students 
on campus who depend on the cars of upperclass- 
men to get home weekends, to go to some of the 
ofF-campus sporting events . . . , and to go to the 
multitude of campus and off-campus organizations* 
activities. 

As was reported in last Monday's Collegian^ 
there are 1900 parking spaces available and only 
1660 stickers issued. That there are over 300 park- 
ing spaces left, indicates that the proposed move 
is not necessary. Even with the probable increase 
in campus automobile registrations next year, I 
believe that there are several places on this campus 
that oould be turned into parking lots without very 
much work, and without spoiling the beauty of 
the campus. 

With all due respect to the Dean, I propose that 
the "jammed campus driving conditions" which ex- 
ist can be eliminated. According to the rules . . . 
there is to 'be no driving on campus during the 
class hours except in specific cases. If this is so, 
and all of the day traffic is of the latter type, the 
situation will not be helped by decreasing the nuni-

At Williams; Face Huskies 
Here For YanCon 'Title' 

by BILL CROTTY 

Williams College failed to play the part of the gracious host when they rewarded the 
UMass soccer team's trip to Williamstown with the presentation of an undesired 4-1 loss 

last Wednesday. 

The Ephmen, playing their first game of the season, showed promise of again being one of New 
England's best. Perennially strong and stocked with an abundance of prep school experienced players, 
the Williams contingent coupled a hard-running, flashy attack with a sound defense to give the Redmen 
a little more than they could cope with. 

This was no more than was to be expected. In contrast to the misleading score, the Bnggsmen ac- 
quitted themselves nobly. Playing at times their best soccer of the season, the Umies kept the experts 
guessing during the first half. l « ^ 

With Billy Burke dickering in a high hard one, the Redmen grabbed the lead in the first quar- 
ter. Displaying the hustle and determination that seems to characterize all UMass soccer teams, the 
Redmen repelled all attempts by

Williams to even the score and 
left the field with a 1-0 lead at 
halftime. 

Although the over-all edge in 
play went to the Ephmen in the 
first quarter, the Redmen seemed 
to get their game rolling in the 
second quarter and outplayed 
and outfought their rivals. Press- 
ing throughout, they kept the 
ball deep in enemy territory. The 
whole team here worked great 
with a little special praise going 
to fullbacks Joe Morrone and 
Ned Bowler, and to sophomore 
lineman Bernie Goclowski. 

After intermission, Williams 
went back on the attack with a 
vengeance. Led by Quinson's two 
scores, the Ephmen displayed 
some real power and rammed 
home three scores in the third 
stanza. The Redmen fought 
back hard in the last period, but 
their scoring drives failed to 
jell. 

A great game is in store Sat- 
urday morning at 10:30 at Alum- 
ni Field, when the Redmen will 
take on the UConn Huskies for 
the YanCon champonsihip (this 
comes about for the reason that 
these are the only two schools 
in the Yankee Conference that 
play soccer). Last year the Umies 
prevailed 3-1.

Tomorrow marks the clash of 
two teams that have baffled the 
experts since the 'beginning of 
the football season over four 
weeks ago. Although the YanCon 
title has all but been conceded 
to the Black Bears of Maine, the 
predictors are still scratching 
their heads over what kind of a 
performance to expect from the 
Redmen and the UConn Huskies. 

Both have refused to conform 
to the pre-season form charts in 
their every outing thus far. The 
boys who work their way through 
school via the medium of parting 
suckers from their geetas on 
sporting wagers have stated their 
touch this game with a ten foot 
flat intentions of refusing to 
pole. 

The Huskies looked miserable 
in their effort against Spring- 
field, but truly looked remarkable 
in their tilts with both Yale and 
Rutgers. The Redmen were lack- 
adaisical versus AIC, but came 
back strong in their visit to Bos- 
ton. They were "big league" in 
their valiant but vain stand 
against the BU Terriers. 

The Huskie-less Huskies will 
be looking for sweet revenge be- 
cause of the strange disappear- 
ance of their mascot, and the 
Redmen can bolster their vindic- 
tive bile every time that they 
glance at the field and observe 
the huge UC balefully embla- 
zoned on the Alumni Field turf. 

Coach Charlie O'Rourke will 
send his squad into the fray still 
minus the services of the injured 
backfield duo of Roger Barous 
and John Cieri. The UMass line 
will be intact except for the con- 
tinuing absence of Fran Spriggs. 
The team should be well rested 
after two weeks, and Coach 
O'Rourke has worked his charges 
up to a fighting peak without 
making them stale. The Huskies 
are on the march off their last 
two efforts, so the game shapes 
up to be a thriller, at least we 
won't attempt to pick a winner.

As UMie-land gets an early 
•start on its biggest weekend of 
the year, the Hill and Dalers 
have traveled to Boston to face 
what will be probably be their 
toughest assignment of the year. 

Coach Bill Footrick and his 
confident group have worked 
hard all week with revenge in 
their minds as the formidable 
Ivy League foe was one of only 
two teams that outran the 1955 
Redmen club. 

Coach Footrick is planning to 
go with the same group that sent 
Williams back up the Mohawk 
Trail with more than their feet 
blistered. This lineup will con- 
sist of the veteran Co-Captains 
Lee Chisholm and Tom Flynn 
and the amazing Soph trio of 
Eric Dahl, Dickie Leonard and 
Don Medeira. 



Little Redmen 
In First Fray 

Tomorrow afternoon while the 
varsity football team faces 
UConn in what might well be 
termed a grudge match, the frosh 
head-bangers journey to Con- 
necticut to do battle with Ches- 
hire Academy. 

In practice, the little Redmen 
have looked exceptionally good 
under the tutorship of Ron Math- 
ieson and Ed Sydmanski. All 
eyes will be on these future var- 
sity prospects as they enter their 
initial frav tomorrow.

Hokkaido U Hears Mather 
On Behalf Of University 

During his recent trip to Japan, President Mather de- 
livered an address to a group at Hokkaido University in 
Sapporo, Japan. The text of his address is as follows: 

President Sugunome, Your Excellency, distinguished 
guests and friends. It is an honor, a pleasure and a priv- 
ilege to bring here to Hokkaido University, in beautiful 
Sapporo, the handclasp of your sister institution, the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts in Amherst, Massachusetts. The 
resemblance between our institutions is indeed that of two 
loving and very similar sisters. For it is one of trust, of 
friendship and of respect for people to people. Our heri- 
tage in history is similar. Our institutions both began as 
agricultural colleges, and the agricultural college inspires 
in its essence and its purpose the meaning of the land and 
the people who live by the land. Our philosophy is similar 
because of this heritage. Very simply I would say it is that 
what I know, or learn, or discover, or believe, / irill tell 
you. And what yon know, or learn, or discover, or believe, 
you will tell me. This is the essence of education, and of 
science, and of brotherhood — that mutually in cooperation 
and understanding for all our peoples we may progress and 
advance happily toward the realization of a prosperous, and 
peaceful, and beautiful life. Such unselfishness is typical 
of the inspiration, and the leadership, and meaning of such 
people as Dr. William Clark, and we regard it now as he 
did — ^the best way to overcome ignorance, misundei'stand- 
ing, disagreement, aggression or force. On this beautiful 
day, then, in September, 1956, I repeat that it is my honor 
and pleasure and privilege to extend to world-renowned 
Hokkaido University our best greetings for a continuation 
in the present and the future of the very meaning of this 
80th anniversary celebration, many, many years of pros- 
perity, of progress and oi advancement. Thank you.

Student Union Director 

William D. Scott of Texas Technological College has 
been named second director of the Student Union. His ap- 
pointment was confirmed Saturday by the Board of Trus- 
tees and will become effective Nov. 1. 

Scott in effect succeeds Thomas Culbertson, a former 
teacher here, who was chosen during the summer. Culbert- 
son resigned soon after his appointment to enter private 
industry. 

President Mather recommended Scott to the board. 
Scott had been the first choice of the joint faculty-student

month ago that Scott "stood 
head and shoulders above" 
any other applicant. 

In his application for the job, 
Scott said he wanted to come 
here because he has "a particular 
desire to see a good thing grow." 

He's very enthusiastic about 
the job, McCune said yesterday. 

Scott, who will be directly re-

He was first director of both 
the Texas Tech and West Vir-

3 Student Leaders Plan 
Talks For SK Meeting 

Three student leaders — the presidents of the student 
senate, Pan-Hellenic and the Inter-Fraternity Council — will 
speak Thursday night at the open meeting on the State 
House study of possible bias 



in national Sigma Kappa 
sorority. 

Joining State Representative 
Sumner Z. Kaplan and Senate 
President Richard L Furbush on 
the Bowker stage will be Law- 
rence Parish, pro-tem president 
of the senate. Miss Mary Lou 
Parker, president of PanHel, and 
Jordan Levy, head of the IFC. 

President Mather has said he 
would attend the meeting, which 
is sponsored by the CoUr(]inn. 

Miss Parker warned last night 
that if she were asked questions 
from the floor she would have to 
answer for herself rather than 
the whole Pan-Hel organization. 



"I can't answer for all the 
members on the spur of the mo- 
ment," she said. "We'd have to 
talk it over first." 

The meeting, open to everyone 
except freshmen women who 
must obey early closing hours 
rules, will start at 7:30 p.m.

lic, plans to spend one night in 
the Commons, an evening in the 
lounge of a women's dorm, and 
one day in Memorial Hall be-

Keogh will notarize the ballots 
without charge. He has warned 
absentee voters not to mark

dents guilty of first viola- 
tions of the traffic ru.es, Stanley 
Merrill, chairman of the traffic 
committee, said last night. 

This is the second time in a 
week that the administration and 
students have hassled over the 
car problem. Dean Hopkins' dis- 
closure last week that he would 
recommend only seniors be al- 
lowed to have cars next year has 
aroused student opposition. 

The trafllic committee last week 
issued a statement recommending 
that conflicts arising between the 
students and the university over 
traffic regulations be cleared up. 

Merrill said yesterday the ad- 
ministration had agreed to the 
rules drawn up last spring by the 
traffic committee in conjunction 
with the police department. 

"It now appears that they 
have decided that these rules 
don't go far enough," Merrill 
commented. 

The statement also recommend- 
ed that the administration make 
known to the student body any 
changes in the existing regula- 
tions. 

Merrill pointed out that these

UM Alerted IVz Years Ago To State's Interest In Bias 



by RICHARD MILLER 

Seven-and-a-half years ago, in the spring of 
1949, discussions of Greek discrimination and the 
steps taken to prevent its occurrence here were 
the subjects of state- v/ide newspaper coverage. 

At that time, on Thursday, May 19, Ralph Van 
Meter, then president of UM, announced that the 
establishment on campus of any new chapters 
which foster membei-ship discrimination based on 
color or creed was absolutely prohibited. He also warned 
existing units to take "immediate and positive steps" to 
free themselves from any such restrictions. 

IFC Opposes Bias 

The Interfratemity Council, informed in advance of 
the administration's edict, unanimously adopted a resolu- 
tion opposing "fraternal discrimination on the basis of 
race, creed, or color." This had been voted on Wednesday 
evening. May 18. 

The action was taken after several months of discus- 
sion of discriminatory clauses in the constitutions of na- 
tional fraternities by fraternities themselves, the IFC, 
and student-faculty forums. 

Two days later, on May 20. Dean Helen Curtis said 
that she was certain she could and would obtain copies of 
tho constitutions of the six UM sororities to determine 
whether they were discriminatory. Phi Delta Nu is the 
only pn>st-iit I'M sorority that was not on campus at that 
time. [Till- (l.nii this fall said she had not read them all, 
and later collfctiMl statements from oach .wrority concem- 
iiiK iiitii iiiciiiiH'rship re<iuirt»metit3, ] 

The impetus for the interest in the problem at that 
time perhaps stemmed from the suspension of the Am- 
heret College chapter of Phi Kappo P«i. The national 



executive council of the fraternity voted late in November, 
1948, to suspend the chapter for pledging a Negro. 

When the Amherst chapter decided to initiate the boy 
and continue as a local organization, Charles W. Cole, the 
president of the college, praised the group for its action 
as exemplifying "the democratic spirit of Amherst Col- 
lege." 

Several months before the action taken at UM, the 
University of Connecticut .set a 1950 deadline for the C'^d 
of racial and religious bias in its social organizations. 

The Boston press followed closely the anti-bias move- 
ment at UM. Editorials in the Boston Globe, Herald, and 
Traveler, as well as tho Springfield Union, hailed the 
action of IFC as especially significant because it was a 
voluntary move by the students. They pointed out that 
attitudes cannot be forced. 

Van Meter took tho same position. 

Attitudes, Not Words Important 

"We are not concerned about words on pai)er," he 
said, "but we are interf'ste<l basirally in educating stu- 
dents in sovmd human values. What is important is what 
the students think. And student's attitudes are not deter- 
mined by administrative or faculty ordons — cxcop^^^ ad- 
versely." 

Miss Alice Burkr>, a roportor for tho Boston Traveler, 
who \v;is iTiv«'sti);at iii^ (Jrct-k disriimination here at the 
time, found that six of ten fnxt^mities then on campus 
oxrludod either Jews, Negroes, or orientals from moml)er- 
ship and that one (Lamlxia Chi Alpha) had a quota sys- 
tem for Catholics, All six wcro nirmbers of nationals. 

[Dean Rol>ert Hopkins said this fall that only two fra- 
ternities here now have disoriniinatory restrirtion.s. One 
fraternity here. Phi Sigma Kappa, recently announced 
th.it tho national rid itself of a n\solution restricting 
Negroes. ] 



Miss Burke said that Hopkins told the Traveler he 
would require monthly progress reports from all discrim- 
inatory fraternities. 

Van Meter's Announcement Said Aid 

She reported that Van Meter's announcement came as 
a welcome aid to the Kappa Sigma, Theta Chi, and Sigma 
Phi Epsilon chapters which were making attempts to 
have their national policies changed. 

She found that all but one .sorority here disclaimed 
knowledge of any restrictive membership clau.se. 

Elizalwth Jane Skahill, the pre.sident of UM Chi 
Omega, said .she knew that the discrimination issue wa8 
rai.sed at the la.st convention, but told Miss Burke that 
only national officers of the .sorority could give out infor- 
mation as to what the constitution contiiinod. [Chi Omega 
recently turned in to Dean Curtis a statement alwut heir 
meml>ership requirements, but not the constitution itself.] 

Sig Ep had pledged a Jewish student, Harvey Segal, 
alth')ugh the national by-laws at that time forbade Jewish, 
No^ro and oriental members, Miss Burke reported. 

She suited that Theta Chi here h.ad votf><l unanimously 
to support their brothers at Pai-tinouth in a jiotition to 
srilio out tla- rlauso whii'h ]iniito(l nienihorsliip to males 
"l>elonging to the Cauca.sign race." 

Kappa Sigma For«^aw Hard Going

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1956 



Last Saturday 

Well, we're still shaking our heads. More 
records were set on Saturday than ever be- 
fore in the history of the university. And 
the University of Connecticut did all of the 
record setting. It was difficult to believe that 
this school actually whipped Harvard two 
seasons ago. 

And what, you may say, is comment on 
a football game doing on the editorial page? 

It appears that it has become time for 
the school to worry about the athletic im- 
pression we are stamping for ourselves. It 
became obvious Saturday that a school 
either goes "all out" for football or has no 
business on the field. It would be ridiculous 
to remain engaged in the business of football 
simply to act as a "breather" for the schools 
in our own class. So should the university 
do as many other schools have done in the 
past, and give up all football but intramural? 

Time after time the high school stars of 
our state, even in this area of Western Mass- 
achusetts, have made their "decisions" to at- 
tend some other school. 

Our university isn't drawing these play- 
ers because we don't pay them anything 
worthwhile. If you expect to win football 
games, you've got to buy football players. 
That has become something of an axiom in 
the game. 

The question seems to be, how much 
should we pay for them, if anything. Schools 
that had thought to make money from the 
football situation have found that, in the 
long run, they lost fabulous amounts when 
they started to lose and when gate receipts 
fell off. 

Schools that stopped playing football, 
like MIT, haven't lost one jot of prestige. 

The decision of whether or not to stop 
playing football for "Stadium Saturdays" is 
a question that must be decided by adminis- 
tration. Someone should start deciding. 



Discrimination 

Discrimination is something like New 
England weather. Everybody talks about it, 
but nobody does anything about it. 

It seems that the analogy applies; when 
the problem of discrimination arises like a 
threatening cloud, the New Englander iso- 
lates himself from the environment's dis- 
turbing envelopment. 

Here at the university, we've been talk- 
ing about it for a long time. Seven and one- 
half years ago, the entire university became 
excited about the problem. The fact that 
we are still concerned about the problem of 
discrimination on our campus indicates bet- 
ter than words how much was done by the 
administration and student body. In short, 
nothing. 

It appears that we have been following 
in the footsteps of Jonathan Swift's "Mod- 
em Man," the man who refuses to utilize 
the example of his forefathers. Looking 
backward, we see a New England which was 
founded because of our forefathers' basic 
beliefs and thoir flight to escape discrimin- 
ation abroad. 

Only when, like our forefathers, we face 
the rocks in our fields and remove them, 
can we expect a productive future.

The Errant Editorialist 

(Spurred on by the tumultuous reception of his initial fighting 
editorial, your errant editorialist fearlessly resumes his fight for 
truth, justice, brotherhood, benevolence, charity, etc. It is not for 
glory and renown that your errant editorialist espouses the causes 
that he does, but strictly for fees.) 

It has come to our attention that the Dining Commons is in sad 
plight for lack of domestics, scullery maids, lackeys, and various and 
sundry other functionaries; we had intelligence of the pitiable state 
auditory reix)rt of several thousands of stomachs pitching, rolling, 
of affairs both from the notice of it in the Collegian, and from the 
grinding, and so forth, to be heard, at various hours of the day, is- 
.suing from the general direction of the Commons. This last we take 
to be the remonstrance of myriads of digestive systems crying out 
for gustatory satisfaction while ser\'ice was at a near stand-still. 

Far be it from us to stand by at such an important crisis in the 
general peace of the campus. It is our utmost desire to see the cessa- 
tion of so unfortunate a condition, and we are sure that our ears 
would welcome respite from such uncommonly foul and repugnant 
sounds as those by which they have been accosted. Therefore, after 
much serious and prolonged cerebration, we have come up with two 
methods of attack upon the problem: 

(1) Change the name of the building now known as the Commons. 
It is only human nature that people desire to think the best of them- 
selves, and will avoid association with that, the revelation of which, 
would tend to lower their own estimation of themselves, and dis- 
value the estimation of their comrades. The verj' connotations which 
hover about and cling to the word Commons, to say the very least, 
savor of low estate and plebeian circumstance. How anyone would 
even EAT there, much less WORK there, is really beyond the com- 
prehension of any person with the least pretension of being civilized. 
One would think the planners of projects would consider better when 
they came to the naming of buildings. 

The remedy is plain; change the name of the brilding, taking 
one's clue from the British houses of Parliament, to the Dining Lords. 
We suspect this maneuver alone would send hundreds of would-be 
functionaries to the sculleries. 

(2) The second step hinges around the topic of remuneration. 
It is evident from observing the plain and homespun garments of the 
present functionaries of the dining hall, the plain white costume day 
in and day out, with no relief from the monotony of cut and color, 
that these people are in rather dire straits. It would seem that, in 
this enlightened age, the powers that be would have the happy fore- 
sight and benevolent inspiration to pay these hardworking souls 
a fair and decent living wage. These powers that be must realize 
that this is the era of the working man, and that the days of slave 
labor have passed. Powers that be! Wake up before it is too latel

LETTERS 
TO THE EDITOR 

To the Editor: 

Having been appointed acting head of 
the Youth For Eisenhower Committee, I 
would like to extend an open invitation to 
all members of the university to join this 
newly formed organization. 

As we are now faced with a vital decision 
at the polls, we must make an all out effort 
to arouse the public to get out and vote for 
the best qualified man — Dwight D. Eisen- 
hower. 

All those who are interested in partici- 
pating, in this organization, please contact 
me at 403 Butterfield. 

William B. Barry 



To the Student Body: 

The time has come when, as Americans, 
as citizens, and as responsible individuals, 
we are called upon to once again consider 
the election of a President and a Congress, 
a Governor and a Legislature, and numerous 
local officials. 

For many of us, this is a task to be done 
by others, since we have not reached the 
legal voting age. Because we consider the 
privilege of voting to be someone else's res- 
ponsibility, we suppose the issues and their 
solutions to be outside the realm of deliber- 
ation and of action. This should not be! 

For it is the issues, the programs, and 
the platforms of any political campaign — 
and especially a presidential campaign — that 
make up the fabric of American political ac- 
tivity as we know it today. Precisely be- 
cause of this influence of the issues upon 
American political action — and the resulting 
effect of changed governmental policy — we 
need to pay particular attention to the prop- 
osition, consideration, and resolution of the 
programs of this coming election campaign. 

Integration, parity price supports, foreign 
policy, tariffs, and the like, are issues which 
vitally effect each and every one of us. It is 
important that we investigate the campaign 
issues ; that we endeavor to learn more about 
them. What we, as indivi' .als, think about 
the problems of the day is important. That 
we, as responsible citizens, are concerned 
about the programs of the campaign is aha 
important, nay, almost a mandatory require- 
ment for a healthy, progi'essive, democratic 
system of government. 

It is to be concluded, therefore, that 
what(mM- your particular political belief may 
be, you have a re.sponsibility and a duty to 
hear and di.scuss the issues of this campaign. 
If you have the spirit, be partisan; the con- 
viction, be indep<'nd(nit : in any case, hr in- 
trrrsted. This is i/nur America, your home 
and your life. Wov welfare deserves your 
interest and consideration.

Sunny Skies, Dismal Day For UMass Teams 

UCoiin Wrecks Redmeii 71-6 ^ In Huskies Belt Booters 4-1; 
Horrid Homecoming Humiliation 



by TED RAYMOND 

Although the weather was just fine and dandy, Saturday was the most dismal day 
in UMass history. The UConn Huskies, possibly aroused to undreamed of heights of anger 
after being huskie-less for several days, completely humiliated the Redmen 71-6 and 
shattered six records enroute to their stunning victory. 

The Huskies posted a new high in Yankee Conference scoring with their 71 mark- 
ers ; set a new conference total offense mark of 504 yards ; galloped their way to a new 
rushing record of 439 yards ; held the Redmen to a meager 131 yards for a new defen- 



Redmen Remain Winless 

by BILL CROTTV 

The UConn Huskies had a very enjoyable homecoming Saturday 
at UMass. Not only did they throw an H-bomb at the football squad, 
but they also copped the soccer tilt, winning with goals to spare, 4-1. 

Both teams started out slow, but only minutes after the opening 
whistle, the Huskies were awarded a penalty shot. Goalie Chuck 
Niedzwiecki made a great save on the kick, but no one backed him 
up and the Huskies kicked the rebound in the goal over his pros- 
trate form. 

Encouraged by this break, the Huskies really got rolling. Using 



sive mark ; handed the Umies the worst defeat in their 77 year history ; and the Redmen short accurate passing and some precise playmaking, they completely 

fans at least helped set the last mark of the largest crowd to witness a tilt at Alumni '^ " 

^ Field.

STUDYING CAN BE BEAUTIFUL 

Is studying bugging you? Do you have trouble re- 
membering names, dates, facte, figures, and the location 
of the library? Dear friends, it need not be so. All you 
have to do is master the simple art of mnemonics. 

Mnemonics, as we all know, was invented by the great 
Greek philosopher Mnemon in 526 B.C. Mnemonics, in- 
cidentally, was only one of the many inventions of this 
fertile Athenian. He is perhaps best known for his in- 
vention of the staircase, which, as you may imagine, was 
of inestimable value to mankind. Before the staircase, 
people who wished to go from floor to floor had to leap 
from springboards. This meant, of course, that aged and 
infirm persons were forced to live out their lives, willy- 
nilly, on the ground floor, and many of them grew cross 
as bears. Especially Demosthenes, who was elected con- 
sul of Athens three times but never served because he 
was unable to get up to the office of the commissioner 
of oaths on the third floor to be sworn in. 

But after Mnemon's staircase was invented, Demos- 
thenes got up to the third floor easy as pie and took the 
oath-to Athens' sorrow, as it turned out. Demosthenes, 
his temper shortened by years of confinement to the 
ground floor, soon embroiled his countrymen in a series of 
senseless and costly wars with the Persians, the Visigoths, 
and the Ogallala Sioux. He was voted out of office in 
617 B.C., and Mnemon, who had made his accession pos- 
sible, was pelted to death with fruit salad in the Duomo. 







fened'ro.de3th-nW.-fmt'63M rr 



But I digress. We were discussing mnemonics, which 
are nothing more than aids to memory — catchwords or 
jingles that help you to remember names, dates, and 
places. For example, any student of American history 
Burely knows the little jingle: 

Columbus sailed the ocean blue 
In fourteen hundred ninety two. 

You see how simple a mnemonic is? There is no rea- 
ion why you can't make up your own. Say, for instance, 
that you are proceeding with American history. 

The Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock 
In sixteen hundred twenty, doc. 
(This jingle is especially useful to medical students.) 
The next important event is the Boston Tea Party. 
Let us compose a rough-and-ready couplet about that: 

Samuel Adams flung the tea 
Into the briny Zuyder Zee. 

You can see how simple and useful they are — not 
cmly for history, but also for current events. For instance, 

In nineteen hundred fifty six 
It's the cigarette that clicks! 

What, you ask, is the cigarette that clicks? Why, 
Philip Morris, of corris! And why shouldn't it click? 
Could any cigarette be more pleasing to the palate? No! 
Could any cigarette be more tempting to the taste buds? 
No ! A thundering, thumping, resounding no ! Get some 
today, hey. You'll see. 

. CMax Shulman, 196C 

You ttonU need mnemonim to remember the trtmderful natu- 
ral flavor of Philip Morri$ CigaretteM, M>ho$e makerM are dm' 
lighted to brirtg you thit column every week. 



In order to help prevent 
swelling of the collective 
Huskies' heads, they were 

really not that good as their de- 
feat at the hands of Springfield 
will show. On the other hand, 
the Redmen are not nearly as 
bad as they appeared to be. It 
seemed that UMass went into a 
severe state of shock when Len- 
ny King racked up three quick 
scores from which they never did 
quite recover. Incidentally, King 
is one of the best college backs 
that this writer has seen in many 
many moons. 

UMass sorely missed the ser- 
vices of Roger Barous, especially 
in the difficult role of line-backer 
on defense. Depth again played 
an important part in the defeat, 
as the Redmen were forced to 
keep throwing pieces of fresh 
tape on their injured men and 
hurling them back into the fray. 
The sole bright light for the 
Redmen was the TD pass play 
from Tommy Whalen to John 
O'Keefe. 

Next week the Redmen take 
on the Rhody Rams, who also 
suffered an unthinkable defeat at 
the hands of supposedly weak 
Vermont. The way that things 
have been shaping up in the con- 
ference thus far, it would be per- 
fectly feasible to pick either out- 
fit by as many points as you 
think can be scored in the time 
allotted to play the contest. 
Once again we refuse to make a 
prediction. 



First Loss 
By Harriers 
To Harvard 

by JOHN McATEER 

The Cross-Country team proved 
to be just as susceptible as every- 
one else to the jinx this "lost 
weekend of lost weekends". Hav- 
ing journeyed to Boston to face 
the Crimson, the Redmen were 
up against what is easily the 
cream of all New England. 

The 15-48 loss was a crushing 
one in that the UMies did not 
place one of their men in the 
first five places. McLean, the 
Harvard captain won the 4.2 
niil(>> r\.ni in 20:14 minutes and 
the lir.st man for the university 
was, as usual, Loe Chisholm in 
sixth place with the clock show- 
ing 21:07. ll.uxanl al.^o took 
seventh and eighth places with 
Tom Flynn, Dun Mo.lrira, Rich 
Lrouanl, and I),iv<' Hjfrpe fill- 
ing up spots nine to twelve for 
th.' univcrsitv.

the ti'ani avff.-i),: 



took the play away from the Redmen. UConn really bombarded goalie 
Niedzwiecki who decided to repel all boarders. He stopped every- 
thing that came his way including two direct kicks that the Huskies 
let go. Meanwhile, the Redmen, playing some of their worst ball of 
the season got only one try at the UConn goal. 



The second frame started out 
with Webb Cutting letting go a 
cross-field kick at the goal, but 
unfortunately the Redmen were 
not in on the follow-up and lost 
the rebound. The Huskies then 
let go a cross-fielder of their own 
and got right in on the rebound 
to rap it home. The third UConn 
goal was booted over the heads 
of the defense, off the head of a 
Huskie attacker, and into the 
nets. The Redmen kept pressing, 
but the more they pressed the 
worse they did, and the half end- 
ed with UMass still trying to get 
the ball out of their own terri- 
tory. 

After intermission, the Redmen 
came out looking like a new 
team. They proceeded to grab a 
loose ball out of a jam up and 
booted it home for their first 
and only tally; Lou McCarry 
footing it in. The rest of the 
third period saw the home team 
wasting a lot of scoring oppor- 



humiliating

First of all. 
w as a full two 



tunities as they concentrated on 
tightening their defense. 

Tempers flared in the final 
stanza, and there were several 
near brawls. Lyn Sutcliff, now 
playing goal for UMass, made 
a great play when he deflected 
a penalty shot, and then stopped 
the rebound while driving out. 
The final tally of tiie game carne 
when Sutcliff went out to try 
and smother the ball and the 
Huskies slipped it by him into 
the unprotected net.

Poor Rating 
System Here 
Says Provo 

Provost Shannon McCune 
spoke Monday evening at a meet-

of University Professors on "the 
merit system of promotion and 
ranks in pay" at UMass and 
other schools. 

McCune said that the passage 
of the Freedom Bill necessitates 
a clear understanding of the mer- 
it system. Here promotions are 
recommended by department 
heads alone. Thus one man de- 
termines who will be recomm.end- 
ed. 

Department Heads Need 
Assistance 

The departments are too large 
here for a system of this type 
to work efficiently, McCune add- 
ed. He stated that merit should 
be decided by the department 
liead with the assistance of his 
colleagues. 

In discussing the merit sys- 
tem itself, McCune said that two 
important issues are involved: 
what constitutes merit and who 
shall determine it? 

Broad Criteria Here 

Here there is a rather broad 
criteria for merit rating, he add- 
ed. These are: teaching ability, 
professional improvement, and 
institutional interests. 

McCune described the merit 
systems at other colleges and 
universities using as examples 
Ohio State, University of Con- 
necticut, Colgate University, Bos- 
ton University, and University of 
New Hampshire. 

He cited the difference in merit 
rating systems between liberal 
arts colleges and large universi- 
ties. He stated that both stress 
scholarship, teaching ability, and 
personal integrity, however.

Mueller To Speak Here 
At Carnegie Conference 



Parrish Says Settlement 
With Company Due Soon 

by BARBARA HALEY 

Faulty photographs are responsible for the collapse of 
the ID card project, Lawrence Parrish, president of the sen- 
ate, said yesterday. 

Parrish explained that most of the photographs were 
defective, some unrecognizable, and that therefore there will 
be no ID cards this year. 

FINANCIAL SETTLEMENT DUE 

A $1200. contract was made with a photo identification 
company by the senate. Negotiations aie now proceeding 
for a financial settlement with the company. Any money re- 
turned will go to the general fund of the senate. 

Every effort will be made to return money to the stu- 
dents who were forced to pay one dollar because of incorrect 
information given on their cards, Parrish said. 

SENATE NOT AT FAULT 

The fault does not lie in the senate, he added, since it 
handled only the financial part of the transaction. The situ- 
ation was due to circumstances outside the senate's control, 
he said. 

Originally the ID cards were to have been used for 
admission to the university concerts. Undergraduates will 
now use their athletic tickets for concert admission, an- 
nounced Doric Alviani, adviser to the Concert Association. 
Graduate students can get concert tickets at the RSO office. 
The library is now issuing its o^vn cards. 

HOPE FOR NEXT YEAR 

Parrish said about the identification project. "This is 
something we still think is a good idea, and we'll work on 
it for next year." 



Theodore Mueller, director of 
the Language Laboratory at 
WajTiP State University, will bo 
guest speaker at the first Car- 
negie language conference here 
on Oct. 27th. 

The "'Mferpnco is the first in 
a series made possible by a Car- 
negie grant to the university in 
July. 

The subject of Mueller's lec- 
ture will be "The Language Lab- 
oratoi-y, Theory and Methods." 

Mueller helped devise the lan- 
guage lalwratory at Wayne Uni- 
versity and has been its director 
since 1954. Born at Mulhouse, 
France, he studied at the Sor- 
bonne and received his doctorate 
from Northeastern University. 

President of the Foreign Lan- 
guage Teachers' .\ssociation, 
Mueller conducts research in the 



special field of structural linguis- 
tics and the methods and tech- 
niques in teaching modern foreign 
lantruagea. 

He has published several ar- 
ticles on language teaching meth- 
ods and is the author, with 
George Rorglum and Jacques 
Salvaii, of Iiiuifu-^ dc Frnnce, an 
experimental video-linguistic text 
in the teaching of elementary 
French. 

President Jean Paul Mather 
will welcome the guests to the 
conference. Included will be lan- 
guage teachers from AIC, Am- 
herst College, Mount Holyoke, 
Our Lady of the Elms, and 
Smith College.

Williams Fraternity Rejoins 
Nat'l; Clause Dropped 



Commuters' Club Holds Meeting; New 
Officers Elected, Committees Formed 



At a meeting last week of the 
Commuters' Club, the annual 
election of officers took place. 

Chosen to serve as (n-csident of 
the club was Erwin Haigis, '58. 
The office of vice-president went 
to Mary Ansaldo, '58. 

The new secretary and treas- 



urer are Jeanette Radowicz, '58, 
and Ann Young, '58. respectively. 

Chosen to be scK-ial thainntn 
for the club were Judy Herbert, 
'60, and Victor Gagnon, '60. 

A publicity committee was ap- 
pointed by the new president at 
the meeting, also. 



The suspen.sion of the Williams 
College chapter of Phi Delta 
Theta was lifted at the frater- 
nity's biennial national conven- 
tion recently. 

Phi Delta Theta Executive Sec- 
retary Robert J. Miller an- 
nounced that the chapter, sus- 
pended in 1952 and commended 
by the Legislature for pledging 
a Jewish student, has rejoined 
national. The so-called "Aryan 
clause," limiting membership to 
white "Aryans", was dropped 
from the fraternity's constitu- 
tion. 

The Williams chapter was sus- 
pended in 1952 after refusing to 
de-pledge the Jewish student. 

The .".abject of Phi Delta 
Theta's Je\N:sh pledge reached 
the state legislature in Feb. 1953, 
when the House of Representa- 
tives adopted a resolution to "ap- 
prove and applaud" the example 
set by the Williams chapter and 
"condemn" the action of the na- 
tional organization. 

Earlier this year, the national 
Sigma F'hi fraternity dropped 
plans for disciplinary action 
against its Williams chapter, 
which had pledged two Negro 
students. The move was dropped 
after alumni and other chapters 



supported the Williams group. 

Williams College President 
James P. Baxter III presented 
his stand by citing a 194(5 resolu- 
tion of the Williams trustees: "In 
elections to fraternities ... the 
board holds that each undergrad- 
uate should be accorded his mer- 
its as an individual, according to 
his ability, achievement, person- 
ality, and character."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 17, 1956 



ELECTIONS... 

Elections for the Senate were held yes- 
terday on campus. Members of the student 
body have done themselves proud by the vot- 
ing turnout. Sixty-three per cent of the stu- 
dents cast ballots in tlie race for the solon 
seats. 

" Perhaps this is just an indication of vrhat 
is to come in this election year on our own 
campus. It is a good omen of the growing in- 
terest in political affairs that is now coming 
to life in the form of Democratic and Re- 
publican Youth groups oii campus. 

These groups have been formed by stu- 
dents wlio are genuinely interested in the 
outcome of the Presidential elections. They 
are not in it for a good time. 

The Eisenhower supporters here have 
requested the followers of Stevenson to par- 
ticipate in a debate. May we strongly add our 
voice to this idea ? Too many of us are unin- 
formed political-wise, and hence, are often 
misusing our voting privilege. 

It is our duty to understand the vital 
issues of our country, and if the young poli- 
ticians here wull help us to do so, let's sup- 
I)ort them.

AGAIN ID'S 

The ID mixup has finally been solved. 
There will be none this year. 

The blame must be entirely placed on the 
uncontrollable circumstances of poor photos, 
and not on the Senate or the administration. 
Because of these defective photographs, we 
will stand to lose some of the money which 
the Senate had allotted for the ID cards. 

Much of the student body will take pleas- 
ure in the absence of the identification cards, 
for obvious reasons. But we must all agree 
that the system, when and if established, will 
be a smoother way of running things.

THE UNIVERSITY STORE. 

No More Lines: Bookstore Has New Services 

UMass students should be pleasantly surprised with the new bookstore set up in the basement of 
the new Student Union building, which is expected to eliminate the interminable lines to which we have 
become accustomed. 

It will be more spacious, measuring 70 by 40 feet, than the present cubbyhole in the cellar of North 
College. Augustine Ryan, manager of the bookstore, hopes that the new store will be open for business 
at the beginning of next semester. 

Several nevv feature.s, including the self-service plan, will be utilized in the store. According to Ryan, 
there will be five new high-speed cash registers showing the customers' change to aid in faster service. 
There will be eight bookshelves 5 to ft. high by 10 ft.,and several larger ones measuring 7 by 12 ft. 

Shelves will be built into most of the wall space. A small office has been designated for the trans- 
action of checks. 

The bookstore will also offer special services for students. Campus organizations will be allowed to 
use the 18-foot display window for three out of every four weeks. A table will be set up with staplers, 
paper cutters, wrapping paper, twine, address labels for packages and paper punches. Mr. Ryan has 
asked for additional suggestions. 

On your left is a graphic example of red tape at 
the university. It depicts a departmental order for 
a one year subscription to the Collegian. It seems 
to be a simple purchase order but the form it as. 
sumes is ominously long and involved. 

The whole transaction for a one dollar subscrip- 
tion, like everything else, requires a tremendous 
amount of paper work. The entire order resembles 
an abridget' edition of War and Peace. 

Along with the simply stated order, there are 
five invoices used for billing written in complicated 
economic terms. All these copies in various colors 
have to be filled out, one to be retained by the 
Collcfjian office and the rest sent to the Treasury 
Office. The university treasurer stated, however, 
that we have one of the easiest systems used at 
colleges! 

Would anyone like a subscription? 




Letters To The Editor... Debate Asked 



To the Editor: 

As a member of the class of 
'60, I should like to present some 
of my disheartening thoughts to 
niy fellow classmates. 

When I entered the University 
in September, I was immodiatfly 
confronted with the problem of 
fraternities. I realize that theo- 
retically freshmen should not be 
c<incemod with fratmiitios. How- 
ever, this idea seems to exist as a 
hypothesis and is not practic«''i. 
Sine" it is obviously impossible 
to eradicate fratornitirs from tho 
minds of the students, there is 
a silent undercurrent of iipinions 
and ideas shrouded i!i a im :it 
cloud of mystery among us, tlic 



"underclassmen." 

Being a member of this so- 
called "misinformed" group my- 
self, I have, as a result, devel- 
oped certain impressions of my 
own. If I were to pass judgment, 
however, withotit the aid of suf- 
ficient criterion or evidence I 
would be doing an injustice. 

Consequently, I am asking you 
and anyone else who may read 
this article to present his aspects, 
\ i< \V8 or facts on what I feel is 
a veiy imiK)itant question; name- 
ly, why arc our fi-atornities pre- 
dominantly segregated from the 
-standpoints of "clicks" or nar 
riwlv ( iiconii>a.«?8ing groups of 
(Co7itimted on page 4) 



To the Editor: 

The Youth for Eisenhower Committee would like 
to challenge the Young Democrats on campus to a 
debate. 

We stand firmly behind our leader and party 
and would like to make our views clear to the cam- 
pus. 

Are the Young Democrats willing to defend their 
party?

The Mural Mirror 



by STEVE 

Ever since the school year 
started, we've been writing about 
intramurals, but not a word has 
been said alx)Ut the man at its 
helm — Hank Woronicz. Hank is 
a graduate of Brockton High 
School and Boston College. While 
at B.C., he played on the famous 
1940 Sugar Bowl team with 
Charlie O'Rourke and Chet 
Gladchuck. 

Woronicz came to the Univer- 
sity in 1903 after two years of 
coaching football at Bridgewater 
High School. 

Now that he's here, he is a 
very busy man. In addition to his 
job as intramural director, he is 
also freshman football coach and 
varsity end coach. As if all of 
this wasn't enough to keep him 
busy, he coaches the Stockbridge 
basketball team during the win- 
ter season. 

Ever since Woronicz took over 
the reins as intramural director, 
the system has been under con- 
stant improvement. Just this 
year, for example, the Intramur- 
al Handbook was published, and 
a game between our mural 
champs and the champs of UNH 
was set up. 

As far as other plans for the 
year, Coach Woronicz hopes to 
start the basketball league im- 
mediately after the football sea- 
son, so as to leave time for a vol- 
leyball league. He also plans for 
an All-UMass foulshooting con- 
test. Hank Woronicz take a bow 

for a job well done. 

* « * 

After the second week of foot- 
ball, the races in both leagues are 
tighter than ever. In the frater- 
nity league, three teams still re- 
main unbeaten and untied. 

At this time next week, two of 
the three (SAE, LCA, and TEP) 
should still retain their perfect 
records. I say two, because SAE 
meets LCA in the game of the 
■week next Monday night at 6:30. 
It is this writer's guess that the 
lucky two will be SAE and TEP. 

The situation is somewhat 
tighter in the dormitory and in- 
<iependent league. There are sev- 
en undefeated teams at the mo- 
ment, but the list should be much 
shorter by next week, since many 
•of these teams are scheduled to 

face each other.

LCA Holds Top 
Spot With 13-12 
Win Over SPE 

In an attempt to knock Sig Ep 
from the top of the leaprue and 
keep a foothold on first place, 
Lambda Chi, led by quarterback 
Buddy Frye and ends Paul Con- 
nelly and Jack Tarpy, edged the 
Sig Eps 13-12 in the game of 
the week last Monday night. 

Sig Ep appeared very strong 
at the start of the game and 
rolled up the first score on a 40 
yard pass play fi'om Jeri-y Tut- 
tle to Hank Picard. Their lead 
was short-lived, however, as 
Lambda Chi came back strong. 
Buddy Frye ran the ball back 
upfield and then passed to Paul 
Connelly for LCA's first score. 
A pass to Jack Tari)y scored the 
game's only extra point — this 
turned out to be the measure of 
victory for LCA. 

Sig Ep scored again on another 
pass from Tuttle to Picard. The 
scoring endetl when Buddy Frye, 
who is regarded by many as the 
best quarterback in the league, 
scored on a 40 yard run. 

Sig Ep failed to rally in the 
second half, even though Ben 
Getchell, who led the team to the 
intramural football championship 
last year, made his first appear- 
ance in the game. 

Next week, the Game of the 
Week will find two unbeaten and 
untied teams, SAE and LCA, 
clashing head-on in what may 
prove to be the deciding contest 
in the race for the intramural 
football championship. As it 
stands now, this could be any- 
body's game to win or lose, as 
both teams appear very strong. 
Doirt miss seeing this one!

LeeChisholm Wins 
Wellworth Award 

Though last weekend proved to be one of the most dis- 
mal in the annals of UMass sports history, we still feel that 
there were some athletes who helped to brighten, at least a 
little, this year's Homecoming. One of those athletes is this 
week's Wellworth Award winner — Co-captain Lee Chisholm 
of the UMass Cross-Country squad. 

The Redmen Harriers may have lost to New England 
champion Harvard by a smothering score of 15-48, but 
some aspects of the meet were much brighter. For instance, 
the team average for the 4.2 mile course was two minutes 
under their old record, and award-winner Lee Chisholm's 
time was a very respectable 20:07. 

The John Harvards took the first five places in the 
meet, but Chisholm nailed down the sixth spot and was top 
man for the Redmen. 

Chisholm, who also competes in winter and spring 
track, returned last fall to be one of the top performers in 
the UMass cross-country lineup. Before he entered the 
service, Lee attended the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. 

Lee, a Junior from Maiden, stands 5'6" high and 
weighs only 128 pounds. He is presently majoring in edu- 
cation. 

Runners-up this week were John O'Keefe and "Doc" 
Enos, both members of the football squad.

They have an almost endless variety of interesting 
problems to face, George. As a student of metallurgy, 
you know that about two-thirds of aU known chemical 
elements are metals. Many of them are revealing valu- 
able new applications, when highly purified on a com- 
mercial scale. Du Pont is greatly interested in several 
metallic and semi-metallic elements. 

My own experience at Du Pont ranges from work 
on titanium pigments, to metallic titanium production, 
and to the ultra-pure silicon used in transistors. You 
can appreciate some of our metallurgical problems when 
I point out that impurities in transistor silicon have to 
be below one part in 100 million. That's equivalent to 
one pound of impurities distributed through a train of 
ore cars twenty miles long! 

Some of our metaUurgists carry out fundamental 
research on new metals, and, in the development stage, 
they frequently operate pilot plants for producing them. 
Other metallurgists study problems relating to engi- 
neering materials used in construction, carry out re- 
search on intergranular corrosion, or investigate fatigue 
relationships encountered in dynamic, high-preflsure 
operations. 

You'll find many challenging opportunities in every 
phase of metallurgy at Du Pont, George.

Mather Urges Strong Administrative Policy On Greek Bias 



VOL. LXVII NO. 12 PUBLISHED TURICE WEEKLY 



UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS 



FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 195ff 



Trustees Must Act More Directly 
Or Risk Moves 




Greeks Cite 
Positive Steps 
Against Bias 

The three students represent- 
ing the student body at last 
night's Open Meeting, agreed 
that the students themselves aic 
doing eveiy thing in their power 
to fitjht di^crini'nation on this 
campua. 

Mary Lou Parker, piesident of 
Panhflltnic Council, stated that 
the Council believes pi ogress 
against disc) imination has been 
made and will continue to be 
made. She pointed out that no 
sorority on campus has a dis- 
criminatory clause. 

Phi Delta Na, the only local 
sorority on campus, was cited as 
an example of the basic ideals on 
inter-racial and i«ter-religious 
life. 

Panhel Fights Bias 

Miss Parker further illustrated 
that the Panhellenic Council 
makes a practice of inviting for- 
eijpi students to sorority houses 
as giaests. She added that all sev- 
en sororities have invited mem- 
bers of the three major religions 
to join their sororities. 

Jordan Levy, president of the 
Inter-Fraternity Council, ap- 
proved the past administrative 
policy concerning discrimination. 
He said that only two fraterai- 
ties have discriminatory clauses 
left and these houses are work- 
ing to throw^ out these clauses. 

He expressed his belief that 
"evolutionary rather than revolu- 
tionary" action is the best solu- 
tion to the problem of bias. As 
an example Levy cited Phi Sig- 
ma Kappa fraternity, which re- 
cently announced that its nation- 
al had thrown out its discrimin- 
atory rlaiise. 

Greeks Are Democratic 

The hands of the fraternities 
and sororities are not tied, he 
said. They are democratic organ- 
izations and can bring up prob- 
lems at their national conven- 
(Continued on page 4) 



ApologiesSent 
From UConn 

An apology for the actions of 
the UConn students who "raided" 
the UMass campus Oct. 8 has 
been sent to the Senate. 

The apology, from the assist- 
ing president of Student govern- 
ment at UConn, was read by 
Larry Parrish, Senate jircsident 
at Wednesday's meeting. 

The "invasion" occurred when 
about 200 UConn student, came 
to the university campus in a 
gMurch for Jonathan IV, the Con- 
Meticut mascot husky. 

Before they left this caniims 
(without their mascot), the 
UConn "raiders" succeeded in do- 
iog damage to UMass property.

Evolution Not Solution 
Boston Solon States 

by JO-ANN DONAHUE 

Several solutions to the issue of fraternity and sorority 
discrimination are possible, Senator Richard Furbush 
pointed out last night. He listed the alternatives as: 

1. Action by enlightened students to eliminate bias; 

2. Direct administrative action by the university to 
eliminate local chapters from national organizations having steps as may be necessary to meet the university goal." 



Legislature 

Former Administrative 
Policy Said Inadequate 

by SUSAN HEARTY 

In a surprise switch of former policy, President Mather 
stated last night that it is time for the present adminis- 
tration to take a stronger stand against discrimination. 

Mather made this statement at the Open Meeting on 
Sigma Kappa Hearings. He said that the present adminis- 
tration has operated for three years under the policy posi- 
tion of the former administration. This policy was restated 
by Provost Shannon McCune. 

"I believe that discrimination because of race, color, 
or creed has no place on the campus of the university sup- 
ported by and dedicated to the service of all the people of 
the Commonwealth. Such discrimination is an affront to 
the dignity and worth of the individual. It is antithetical 
to the basic purpose of a university. 

Former Policy Restated 

"Because of this belief, I am glad to report that the 
University of Massachusetts, some years ago, through its 
officers concerned with these matters, adopted the follow- 
ing policy: 

"1. The establishment on this campus of additional 
fraternities having in their constitutions clauses which for- 
bid the pledging and initiation of students on the basis of 
race, creed or color will not be permitted. 

"2. Chapters of fraternities having discriminatory 
clauses are encouraged to take immediate and positive steps 
to secure release from these provisions of their local and 
national constitutions. 

Progress Made By Students 

"In line with this policy fraternities and sororities are 
constantly encouraged to rid themselves of restrictive 
clauses or discriminatory practices. Progress has been made 
in this direction by the students themselves. 1 feel sure 
that the university, through its officers is ready to take such 



discriminatory clauses ; 

3. Legislative action in regard to stat('-su ppoj-t od uni- 
versities ; 

4. Legislative action in regard to all universities. 

"I am sure no member of this committee wants to leg- 
islate in this (discrimination) area," Furbush stated. But, 
he added, it may be their duty. 

Discrimination Definitely Cause 

Furbush, along with Representative Sumner Kaplan, 
spearheaded the formation of a committee of the General 
Court of Mas.sachusetts to investigate the "ti'ue" reason 
for the expulsion of the Sigma Kappa soi*ority by its na- 
tional. The committee was also directed to determine wiieth- 
er Sigma Kappa chapters should be banned at state schools. 

This includes UMass, which has a Sigma Kappa chap- 
ter, Beta Eta.- 

Kaplan stated that discrimination was definitely the 
cause of the Sigma Kappa 
ousters. He pointed to the 
national organization's sil- 
ence on the matter. National 
representatives shunned 5?cv- 
eral invitations to appear at 
the committee hearings, he 
said. 



Mather expressed the opinion that the administration 
had the choice of "either doing something or not doing 
something." He said they could take a position and report 
it to the trustees who would, in turn, take action or not take 
action. The second choice was for the administration to take 
action itself. The trustees then may approve the adminis- 
trative action or take its own action. 

"The next step is this evening," Mather said. Then in 
a surprise switch of policy he pointed out that, "I would 
be remiss if I did not make a recommendation to the trus- 
tees." The former administrative stand is not strong 
enough, he said. 

Did Not Intend To Speak 

In a statement to the Collegian Wednesday, Mather 
said he did not intend to speak before the meeting. 

Mather said that the trustees at the university have 
not taken formal action but have merely abided on an infor- 
mation policy since 1950.

This summer, Kaplan said, 
he was approached by repre-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1956 



Mather Must Make 
More Direct Dictum 

Approximately two and one half per cent 
of the student body attended a meeting last 
night that may result in a new administra- 
tion policy that will probably arouse violent 
protests from the large Greek segment of the 
campus. 

President Mather, confronted with a pro- 
posed threat of legislative action unless the 
administration formulates a new fraternity 
discrimination policy, said last night that he 
will bring the matter to the Board of Trus- 
tees in the immediate future. 

Two members of the investigating com- 
mittee foi-med in the Massachusetts General 
Court this summer told an informal group 
of students and administration officials that 
the admitted presence of at least two frater- 
nities on campus whose membership rules 
contain discriminatory clauses, make it the 
duty of the General Court to take action. 
Give Three Solutions 

Three steps, each more stringent than 
the one before, were given by Rep. Sumner 
Z. Kaplan (D) and Richard Furbush (R), 
President of the Massachusetts Senate, as 
possible remedies for the existence of dis- 
criminatory practices at a state administered 
and tax supported institution. 

The first, that of encouraging the stu- 
dents to take action themselves against dis- 
criminatory membership clauses while pro- 
hibiting new fraternities from the campus 
unless their constitutions are sound, has been 
the university policy since 1951. 
Direct Action 

Although, it was pointed out, this policy 
has resulted in the disappearance of many 
such clauses from UMass fraternities, these 
two members of the Massachusetts legisla- 
ture feel that this policy is badly in need of 
changing. 

The second solution is the one which 
President Mather has now taken up. It is 
that of the administration taking direct ac- 
tion to get rid of the clause. This would mean 
probably setting a time limit — perhaps 6 or 
8 years — atfer which any fraternity which 
still had a discriminatory clause would have 
to disengage itself from its national affilia- 
tion. 

The third solution is legislative action — 
first for the university and then for every 
educational institution in the state, whether 
state supported or private. 

This latter idea is obnoxious to us all. 
Lawmaking No Real Solution 

However, as was pointed out by Provost 
McCune, ruling or legislating against writ- 
ten discriminatory clauses will not rid fra- 
ternities of discriminatory practices. Sigma 
Kappa, whose expulsion of two chaptei*s 
which pledged Negroes precipitated the in- 
vestigation, contains no written clause. 
Matter Is Important 

Perhaps the present university policy is 
not strong enough and it certainly leaves 
the administration open to criticism from 
such i-csponsibility-conscious legislators as 
Representative Kaplan and Senator Furbush. 
As President Mather said last night, "This 
matter is important or else we would not be 
here." (At the meeting.) 

Yes, the matter is important and before 
these servants of the taxpayers in the stat« 
General Court legislate fraternities and sor- 
orities right off of our campus, we had bet- 
ter got biis>' and treat the issue as something 
more tiian just "a tempest in a teapot."

No Football;

What shall we do about our 
football team? 



Fans Enjoy 
' Show 



We can: 

(1) Investigate the Athletic 
Department^ — but we've already 
tried that; they (the adminis- 
tration) won't let us. 

(2) Find some mnre money 
(somewhere) and offer mam- 
mouth scholarships to high school 
football stars. 

(3) Relax (as completely as 
possible) scholastic standaids for 
our brawny athletes so they 
would have lots of time to prac- 
tice. 

(4) Get out of the Yankee 
Conference. 

(5) Challenge Smith or Mount 
Holyoke to a football game — tag, 
of course. 

(6) Stop playing football. 

This last proposal has been 
heard on the lips of many stu- 
dents and administration mem- 
bers since last Saturday after- 
noon, but actually, it's pretty 
doubtful that anyone is really in 
favor of this. 

However, say these advocates 
of disbanding the team, a losing 
team is ruining the public rela- 
tions of the university. Even leg- 
islators, they point out, are un- 
consciously influenced by such hu- 
milatiiig afternoons as the one 
suffered by the university last 
weekend. 



UConn Celebrates Anniversary 

The more than 5000 alumnae and 
high school stude-nts who watched 
the Husky's rack up almost 
enough points to celebrate their 
THth anniversai-y, left the cam- 
pus perhaps happy, but with a 
feeling that there must be some- 
thing wrong with Massachusetts 
that such a thing could happen. 

But what would we do with 
out football games? Wouhi we 
have to disband the Precision- 
ettes and cheerleaders and the 
Redmcn Marching Band? 

Precisionettes Are Popular 

Fall Saturday afternoons are 
mad« for the excitement of foot- 
ball — but a game with a score of 
6-71 is somehow not very excit- 
ing. 

Remembering the congratula- 
tory comments directed to the 
Precisionettes from the Boston 
newspapers as well as students, 
perhaps we have an answer here. 

New League 

These 48 lovely coeds who dur- 
ing each half-time draw applause 
and keep the fans from wander- 
ing must not be disbanded. 

Queens of precision pacing, 
they could do nothing less than 
be champs of a new league — a 
league of which the university 
could be charter member. It could 
be called the Laurel League. 
(Laurels, you know are earned 
and not inherited like ivy). 

Whatever, the solution, it's up 
to the administration.

LETTERS . . . 

Letterwriter Proposes Various 
ViewsOu Losing Team Problem 

To the Editor: 

Monday's Collegian editorial regarding the Uni- 
versity football situation should provoke deep 
thought within all of us. 

In the past we have been told to keep our Sen- 
ate investigations, Collegian reporters, and inter- 
ested "private citizen" students away from the bus- 
iness of the Athletic Department. For instance, 
on Tuesday evening, March 22, 1955, President 
Mather told the Senate that student voice or con- 
trol of athletic policies was unjustified. 

But when a University of Connecticut eleven, 
a land-grant Yankee Conference eleven well manned 
with Massachusetts players, breaks five records on 
a single afternoon before the largest crowd in our 
history, the time has come for serious investigation 
and discussion by the student body. That was our 
team out there Saturday afternoon, not Warren Mc- 
Guirk's, Charlie O'Rourke's or even J. Paul Mather's. 

If we are going to play teams like Harvard, 
B. U., Boston College, or even — obviously — UConn, 
we must have men capable of consistently jjlaying 
that kind of football. We cannot play an over- 
emphasized schedule with under-subsidized talent. 

Every student on this campus has a personal 
stake in this. We are forced to pay before every 
semester an athletic fee. Where this money goes we 
don't get to know. Perhaps the Class of 1957 in- 
stead of leaving the University a parking lot as sug- 
gested in a recent Collegian editorial, should estab- 
lish football scholarships with their money. Or may- 
be the student body should be allowed to choose by 
referendum big time football or none at all.

Democrat Uses'Cave'Metaphor 
To Attack Republican Party 

To the Editor: 

Because of future significance of the outcome 
of any election, I would like to bring into relief the 
subtle, yet fundamental theme underlying the pres- 
ent presidential campaign. The very mention of this 
important question will, as usual, send many cam- 
pus Republicans madly scurrying for a pair of coat 
tails to latch onto. 

The major issue of this campaign is whether or 
not this great nation will use its enormous assets 
to take positive steps toward achieving the goals 
of a modem liberal democracy. Both parties, to be 
sure, agree that we must make progress. But one 
seems to feel that all future progress will come 
about through the happy combination of fortuitous 
circumstances, while the other proposes definite 
solutions to every main problem standing between 
us and our cherished ends. 

The Republican Party seems to me to resemble 
a tired old elephant which has come lumbering out 
of the cave of political obscurity in which it was 
long the unwilling occupant and now deafened by 
the reverberations of its own reactionary bellowinjrs 
and dim-eyed from self-enforced darkenment, it fal- 
ters and stumbles in a new environment in which its 
atrophied senses cannot function properly. Its lead- 
er like a typical naive jungle boy is content to sit 
athwart its huge bulk and bask in the bright, tran- 
sient rays of popular acclaim mostly for his previ- 
ous deeds, thinking himself to have performed a 
near miracle in prodding an obsolete creature out 
into a changed world. The Republican Party has 
unanimously and unqualifiedly labeled every one of 
Adlai Stevenson's liberal proposals as attempts by 
a group of insidious plotters to lead this nation 
down the road to socialism and slavery, 

... If we choose to no longer work within the 
framework of liberalism to provide better health, 
education, and .security for every citizen, perhaps 
the foundation of liberalism will decay from unlm- 
provement and inattention and we will risk the de- 
struction of the whole structure built upon it. 

Today, the whole free world, faced by the new 
challenges <if the forces of evil, looks imploringly 
to us to undertake the long overdue initiative in 
sohnng the problems of all man-kind both at home 
and abroad. 

If wo am to answer these pleas we will have to 
first re-as.siert our belief in the only tj-pe of govern- 
ment, liberal democracy, that can achieve these 
ends.

Teammates Eight Years; 
Stars Of Redmen Eleven 



by JOEL WOLFSON 

This weekend's outing with 
Rhode Island at Kingston looks 
to be the turning point of the 
season for Charlie O'Rourke's 
"Pioneer Valley Boys". Having 
gone winless in three starts, the 
Redmen have spent far from a 
leisurely week on the practice 
field. 

It looks now, that the previous 
disheartening showings in which 
the UMies were able to tally only 
once in each game have come to 
an end. 

Two of the Redmen, who will 
wear the maroon and white Sat- 
urday in an attempt to collect 
an initial .scalp, are fullback Rog- 
er Barou.s, nearly recovered from 
a shoulder separation, and hi.s 
roommate at Phi Sig, Jim Dolan. 
Barous may be forced to sit out 
the game or see very limited ac- 
tion for fear of aggravating the 
injury. If Rog does see action, 
his presence in the defensive 
backfield could really bolster the 
defense as a whole, which could 
best be described as seive-like 
against UConn. 

Roger and Jim have been 
teaniiiiates for the past eight 
years. They spent four years to- 
gether at Punchard High in And- 
over and the last four here at 
UMass as teammates, room- 
mates, and fraternity brothers. 

At Punchard, each starred on 
the diamond, court, and gridiron. 
"'Rog" won letters in football and 
track as well as captaining his 
high school baseball squad into 
the small schools tournament on 
the North Shore. Twenty-one 
year old Barous, a marketing ma- 
jor, was converted to fullback 
last year and made the All Yan- 
kee Conference team. 

"Rog" is a real power runner 
who has enough speed to make

those long runs for paydirt. He 
is also the only man in the his- 
tory of the University of Massa- 
chusetts to score against Har- 
vard. Realizing how scarce 
touchdowns have been around 
here lately, we can appreciate 
his 1954 and 19.^.'} total of three 
TD's against the Crimson. 

Adding to his list of laurels, 
the si.x foot 185 pound fullback 
was a member of the 1952 All 
American High School team and 
the Most Valuable Player in the 
1953 Lawrence-Lowell All-Star 
tilt. 

Getting around to the second 
half of the Phi Sig duo, Jimmy 
Dolan also has a long list of ac- 
complishments to his credit. He 

paced the Punchard teams 



captain of the football and bas- 
ketball combines, while also win- 
ning a letter in baseball. 

Jim, who stands a solid 5*10" 
at 175 pounds, was elected to the 
Greater Lawrence All-Stars in 
his high school days. Here at 
UMass, he has overshadowed his 
previous glories by becoming co- 
captain of the Redmen squad 
thanks to his real sparkplug 
hustling and natural leadership 
ability. Dolan, a business major, 
was an All New England guard 
last year and could duplicate that 
honor this year.

many experiences as teammates

Revamped Redmen Ready 
For Rhody Tomorrow 

by TED RAY.MOND 

A revamped Redmen squad will journey to Kingston, 
R.I. tomorrow afternoon in quest of their initial win of the 
season. 

After the crushing loss to a fired-up UConn aggrega- 
tion last w t ek, Coach Charlie O'Rourke has been giving the 
boys his special treatments to bring them back to life to 
face the also-shaken-up Rams. 

Coach O'Rourke has been hard pressed to whip to- 
gether a backfield unit. He is still minus the services of 
Roger Barous, and the probability of more than limited 
service for Charlie Mellen and Tommy Whalen is remote. 

To fill this gap, he has switched 
Bob Moynihan to the fullback 
slot. Bob has been playing at 
end and tackle thus far, and until 
this week had never attempted 
to run from a backfield position. 
In practice scrimmages he has 
looked very good, and, although 
he will have only one week of 
experience he could provide a sur- 
lorise shock to the Rams. 

In the line, both Buzz Allen and 
John Tero have been sidelined all 
week and Ken MacRae has moved 
over from his end slot to fill in 
at center.

Keeion Third,

by STEVE NEEDEL 

The blistering autumn temper- 
atuifs had little effect on the 
two top freshman cross country 
nu-:i at Franklin Park, Boston, 
as the little Redmen placed sec- 
ond to Connecticut in a triangu- 
lar meet with the latter and B.U. 

Dick Atkinson and Jim Kee- 
ion, aces of the frosh harriers, 
braved the heat to finish one- 
three over the three mile course. 

However, a better balanced 
UConn squad was too much for 
"Squeaky" Horn's charges. 

Bill KTiowlton, Doug Burhoe, 
and Ron Carlson showed promise 
in picking up the remaining Red- 
men pOUitS. 



On the varsity side of the meet, 
Bill Footrick's runners duplicated 
the frosh performance by finish- 
ing second to UConn and six 
poiTits under B.U.

champ, led the field with a time

(Continued from page 1) 
He stated that the problem may be left to evolutionary 
process, the job of the students, or turn to revolution. The 
question is then whether to leave the revolution to the state 
university or to the state legislature, he said. 

Evolution 1$ Too Slow 

By letting evolution take place, fifty years from now 
the discriminatory clauses may be discarded, Mather 
pointed out. 

He added that the administration could take another 
move, such as setting a time limit after which any sorority 
or fraternity v/hich had a clause, would be forced to drop 
from the national chapter. This policy has been instituted 
at the University of Colorado and the time limit is 1962. 

Mather stated further that hiring and admissions have 
been his major work for the past two years. But his con- 
cern also spreads to the area of discrimination. "I will not 
tolerate discrimination in hiring and admissions," he said. 
Competence should be the only criteria. He added that any- 
one who would discriminate in these areas is "morally in- 
competent and mentally unsound."

KAPLAN ... 

(Contintied from page 1) 
pa chapter at Jackson who "urged" legislative action. At 
the Sigma Kappa national convention at the end of June, a 
Tufts delegate was "grilled" about the pledging of two 
Negroes. Around the first of August the chapter was in- 
formed of its suspension by a two-line statement from the 
national. The reason given for the expulsion was "for the 
good of the sorority as a whole." 

Decision On Local SK Due 

Kaplan expressed the opinion that Dean Katherine 
Jeffers of Tufts agreed with the committee that the reason 
for the expulsion was discrimination. 

Asked about the committee's decision on whether Sig- 
ma Kappa chapters should be banned from state schools, 
Kaplan replied that this would be made when the commit- 
tee meets next week. 

"I hope the trustees can solve this problem." stated 
Kaplan, "but if they cannot, the elimination of discrimin- 
atory practices becomes my duty and the duty of this com- 
mittee." This statement led to President Mather's sudden 
revisal of the administration's policy. 

"A Quiet War Of Words" 

Quoting an editorial in the Boston Traveler, Kaplan 
said : 'No national guard troops were needed here ... it is 
a quiet war of words among college authorities and the leg- 
islature." 

There was general consensus among the deans and of- 
ficials testifying at the hearings that the students them- 
selves could work out a solution to the problem of discrim- 
ination, Kaplan reiwrted. But, he added that he did not 
agree for two reasons: 

1. Students are only at college for four years and the 
evolutionary process is very gradual; 

2. Powerful alumni can tie the hands of fraternities 
and sororities. 

Therefore, Kaplan stated, there must be administrative 
action since the administration has a duty to maintain an 
academic atmosphere and a campus free from discrimina- 
tion.

He stated that "if we leave it 
up to the students we can surely 
conquer this thing." 

Lawrence Parrish, president 
pro tern of the Senate, explained 
that he could not act as a spokes- 
man for the Senate aince the 
Senate has never discussed or 
or taken any action toward the 
Greeks. 

Parrish Says No Bias 

But as a representative of the 
student body, Parrish stated, "to 
my knowledge there has been no 
evidence of discrimination among 
students of the university. The 
fault lies within the student him- 
self. 

Parrish stated that the only 
reason why a students does not

Operetta Guild Suprise s, Shifts From 'Wonderful Town' 
To 'Paint Your Wagon' To Incre ase Number Of Roles 

Opponentless Parrish 
Looks Senate Shoo-In 



With no opposition in sight, Lawrence Parrish is ex- 
pected to roll into the Senate presidency Wednesday. Par- 
rish is now president pro-tem. 

Miss Marcia Winegard, currently pro-tem vice presi- 
dent, said last night she would be "glad" to nominate Par- 
rish and that she would accept only the vice-presidency. 
Miss Winegard has been con- 
sidered by Senate observers 
as Parrish's most potent ad- 
versary should she choose to run. 

A year ago, pro-tem president 
ran for re-election and was op- 
I>osed at the last minute by Rog- 
er Babb. 

Babb was backed by Richard 
J. Keogh, who was elected last 
week from Greenough, but 
Keogh said last night he planned 
no anti-Parrish move this year. 

"I'm in favor of Larry Par- 
rish for president," said Keogh, 
"on the basis of his experience, 
ability and integrity." 

Keogh's attempt last October 
to unseat Cole failed, although 
Babb at one time thought he had 
steamrollered ahead of Cole. 
Cole won by five votes. 

Only pro-tem officer besides 
Miss Winegard and PaiTish is 
Miss Ruth Ann Kirk, secretary. 
There is no treasurer since the 
resignation of Jonathan Sncad.

The 1956 Index is still avail- 
able to all students who have 
not obtained their copy, the

nized Student Organization 
offices in East Experiment Sta- 
tion.

open meeting on discrimination 
Thursday night, but Miss Evel3rn 
Murphy, president of the group, 
said that this is not true. 

Miss Murphy said she did not 
know why no Sigma Kappa mem- 
bers attended the meeting. 

Miss Murphy had nothing to 
say as to reaction to the open 
meeting. She would not say 
whether or not the chapter here 
has heard anything from the na- 
tional. 



OG Statement 
On Show Shift 

The text of the Operetta Guild's 
executive hoard aiatement an- 
nouncing the change from "Won- 
derful Town'* to "Paint Yorir 
Wagon": 

"The Executive Board of the 
Operetta Guild has changed its 
plans. Tho Guild will do "Paint 
Your Wagon." The Executive 
Board is assuming the extra re- 
sponsibility of changing produc- 
tions in order to give more of the 
many talented people [who] au- 
ditio7ied a chance to sing. 

"Paint Your Wagon" is a very 
fine production musically and 
dramatically. It is written by the 
same men who wrote "My Fair 
Lady" and "Brigadoon" [Lerner 
and Locwe]. It contains such 
numbers as "I Talked to the 
Trees," "Boiti Under a Wander- 
ing Star," and "Hand Me Down 
My Carbines." 



Say 3 Frats Have 
Restrictive Clauses 

Rep, Sumner Z. Kaplan, the 
chairman of the committee inves- 
tigating SK, said that ITieta Chi 
was one of the national fraterni- 
ties that have a written discrim- 
ination clause. lie stated that 
membership is limited to mem- 
bers of the "Caucasian" race. 

Ralph Doe, president of the 
Thfta Chi chai)tor hero, yester- 
day confirmed Kaplan's state- 
ment, but said that the local 
chapter is trying lu have tlio 
clause eliminated. 

Ho reported that at the ce<n- 
tennial convention of the fra- 
ternity last summer, the UM 
chapter voted to rid the national 
of the restrict-on. Ho noted that 
a three-quarter majority was 
necessary to eliminate the clause. 

Doe said he feels that at the 
next convention (in two years) 
tho clause will bo eliminated. 



Kaplan also reported that 
Lambda Chi Alpha has a mem- 
bership clause which states that 
members must be "socially ac- 
ceptable throughout the country 
as a whole." The fraternity pre- 
viously had had a clause which 
limited membership to whites. 

Provost Shannon McCune, a 
member of the fraternity, called

discrimination. 

2] Representative Sumner

that national Sigma Kappa is 
practicing discrimination. 

3] Kaplan suggested that if 
the administration did not take

Guild's Executive Board OK's 
Alviani's Proposal For Change 

In a sudden shift catching members of the music de- 
partment by surprise, the Operetta Guild's executive board 
announced last night the guild would produce Paint Your 
Wagon in the spring rather than Wonderful Toivn. 

The five-man board, taking "extra responsibility," de- 
clared in a press release the 
shift was being made "to 
give more of the many tal- 
ented people [who] auditioned 
a chance to sing." 

Director Doric Alviani could 
not be reached last night for 
comment, but Miss Sendra Wen- 
ner, a member of the executive 
board, said Alviaiu proposed the 
switch Wednesday night so that 
more students could perform.

Sorority Restricts 

Early in September, the CoU

of Chi Omega that their sorority

groes. 

Both said that they knew noth- 
ing of the membership restric- 
tion until initiation, when it was 
pointed out to them as part of 
the initiation ceremony. 

Other members of the sorority 
stated that the house larked a'^y

that Alviani selected the cast on 
the basis of their auditions for

Miss Wenner also claimed that

cussed abandoning "Wonderful 
Town" until Alviani suggested 
"Paint Your Wagon" Wednesday. 

The board, she said, approved 
the shift unanimously. She called 
the size of the "Wonderful 
Town" cast "limited."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1956 



The Errant 
Editorialist 

(For the third Monday the courageous 
stands and opinions of your Errant Edito- 
rialist appear in the favored pages of the 
Collegian. Despite rampant calumny and the 
outrage of vicious vituperation, he is deter- 
mined to state forthrightly his views and war 
unrelentingly against almost anything. He 
wishes to here state publically that his ardor 
for the publication of truth was not dimin- 
shed a jot by the dastardly attack he suffered 
Thursday last in the C-Store, when he was 
bombarded by a f usilade of wet tea bags by a 
number of unidentified toughs. Unidentified 
toughs!! you shall not dampen truth with 
all your myriad hurled tea bags!!!) 

In the face of the many pressing and ur- 
gent problems that have been occupying the 
campus for the past few weeks, namely the 
questions of discrimination, the coming elec- 
tion, etc., concern with the problem of "in- 
tellectual atmosphere" and "academic stand- 
ards" has muchly abated of late. With the 
exceptions of a preliminary blurb in one of 
the early fall Collegians and a series of pic- 
tures and thumbnail sketches of a few top- 
ranking students which appeared a week or 
two ago, the issue seems to be a dead one. 
Your Errant Editorialist, being of morbid 
turn of mind, now essays to drag the corpse 
of this question out of its shallow grave, or 
rather, cut it down from its gibbet, and 
with the Leyden jar of imagination, proceed 
to galvanize it. 

The essence of the problem, as the very 
acute and discerning olfactories of your Er- 
rant Editorialist discerns it, is that the 
"scholarly life" lacks popular appeal; viz., 
glamour, excitement, intrigue, adventure, 
etc. The "scholarly life" must be presented 
to the student body in a new light, in such 
a maner as to quicken the imagination, and 
enliven the senses. 

We have the answer before us already; 
it is indeed strange that those concerned 
with the problem were not quick enough 
to apprehend it. The major functions of the 
campus year, Homecoming Weekend, Hor- 
ticulture Show, Winter Carnival, Greek 
Week, etc., have as one of their main fea- 
tures the selection and crowning of a 
QUEEN. Why not the same procedure for a 
campaign for a more intellectual atmosphere 
here? 

As a procedure of implementation we 
suggest a Weekend to be called, for example, 
Brain Week. There could be a rally, followed 
by a bonfire. The bonfire, in order to keep up 
a constant motif, would consist of a monu- 
mental pile of books, encyclopediae, reference 
books, dictionaries, the whole seasoned with 
slide rules. Then, at the I.Q. Ball, would 
transpire the crown of the Queen of Brain 
Week. 

The fortunate young lady must be care- 
fully chosen, with great care to her qualifica- 
tions. She .should be, of course, a well-turned 
lass, with a sliapely medulla and appealing 
ganglions. Anfi to comply with university 
regulations conconiing student activities, she 
should liavt' at least a 2.0 average.

ADVENTURES IN SOCIAL SCIENCE: NO. 2 

Doff your caps and bells; there will be no fun and games this 
day. Today, with earnestness and sobriety, we make the second 
of our forays into social science. Today we take up the most 
basic of all the social sciences— sociology itself. 

Sociology teaches us that man is a social animal. It is not his 
instincts or his heredity that determine his conduct; it is his 
environment. This fact is vividly borne out when one considers 
any of the several cases of children who were raised by wild ani- 
mals. Take, for example, the dossier on Julio Sigafoos. 

Julio, abandoned as an infant in a dark wood near Cleveland, 
was adopted by a pack of wild dogs and reared as one of their 
own. When Julio was found by a hunter at the age of twelve, the 
poor child was more canine than human. He ran on all fours, 
barked imd growled, ate raw meat, lapped water with hi.s tongue, 
and could neither speak nor understand one single word. In 
short, he was a complete product of his environment. 









... ^c u:i ^ i:0"Jpl<.tL' pnjjact cf iu$ cmccnmttlt^** 



(Julio, incidentally, was more fortunate than most wild chil- 
dren. They never become truly humanized, but Julio was excep- 
tional. Bit by bit, he began to talk and walk and eat and drink 
as people do. His long dormant mental processes, when awakened 
at last, turned out to be remarkably acute. In fact, he was so 
bright that he learned to read and write in a month, got through 
grammar school in five years and high school in two. And last 
June, as thousands of spectators, knowing Julio's tragic back- 
ground, stood and cheered, he was graduated valedictorian from 
Cal Tech with a degree in astrophysics! 

(Who can say to what towering heights this incredible boy 
would have risen had he not been killed the day after commence- 
ment while chasing a car?) 

But 1 digress. To return to sociology, people tend to gather in 
groups -a tendency that began, as we all know, with the intro- 
duction of Philip Morris Cigarettes. W^hat an aid to sociability 
they are! How benignly one looks upon his fellows after a puff 
of Philij) Morris's gentle, pleasant, flavorful tobacio! How c-agcr 
it makes one to share, to communicate, to extend the hand of 
friendship! How grateful we all arc to IMiilip Morris for mak- 
ing possible this togetherness! How good not to live in the bleak 
pre-1'hilip Morris world, with every man a stranger! 

Tliti groups that people live in today (thanks to Philip Morris) 
vary widely in their customs. What is perfoclly acceptable in 
onesiK icty may be outlandish in another. Take, for iiistatuf. the 
case of i K P<»<)i)0(imoogoo.

Letters To The 
Editor: 

To the Editor: 

Letter- writer Schine (Friday, Oct. 19) 
shows a flair for rhetoric, but lacks the fi- 
nesse that would have prevented him from 
splitting his infinitives, (. . . If we chose to 
now longer work, etc ; ... we will have to 
first re-assert, etc.). Such elementary faults 
in grammar indicates that there may also be 
errors in Shine's thinking. 

He speaks of "campus Republicans madly 
scurrying for a pair of coat tails to latch 
onto"; he has, then, never heard about the 
misinformed pot that called the kettle black? 
If Shine wants to know about coat tails, let 
him ask no less an authority than the "mad- 
ly scurrying" Democratic candidate who re- 
turned last week from the West with a hand- 
ful of them. 

As for Shine's naive assumption, which 
he states in a belabored old cliche, that 
"... the whole free world . . . looks implor- 
ingly to us to undertake . . . initiative in solv- 
ing the problems of all mankind" — rubbish ! 
The 'whole free world' looks to us for noth- 
ing but new automobiles and the money to 
buy them with. Other nations resent vehem- 
ently our efforts to solve any of their prob- 
lems, whether our exertions are for their 
own good, as we see it or not. Let no intel- 
ligent voter be swayed by this nonsense about 
others looking to us for succor; we are en- 
vied, not admired — sucker is the word. 

Finally, let Shine be reminded that a 
wagging tongue cannot turn the wheels of 
government. What else have these Demo- 
cratic orators to offer?

To the Editor: 

The U of M Young Democrats Club would 
like to accept the counter-challenge presented 
by the Youth for Eisenhower Committee. 

We say coimter-challenge since at the be- 
ginning of last week, a member of our group 
made a direct challenge to W. B. Barry for a 
political debate to be broadcast over WMUS. 
Shortly following our challenge, Mr. Barry 
took uix>n himself the honorable task of ig- 
noring our proposal and presenting his own 
through a letter to tli' Collegian as if it were 
an original idea. (Rather sneaky, hmmmm?) 

We gladly a(((M>t the counter-challenge 
and hope the debate will ho supported by 

niomhcrs of both parlies and indr'ix^iidents.

Redmen Drop Third 
As R.I. Rams Romp 



Straight 
34-13 



by TED RAYMOND 

The Redmen dropped their third straight decision of the current season to the Rhody 
Rams 34-13 at Kingston, Saturday afternoon. The Rams contrived to score in every peri- 
od of the contest as they snapped a three game losing streak of their own. 

The Redmen lost almost every decision to the referee as the breaks consistently went 
against them. The UMass fans got excited early in the first period as the Redmen started 
a drive right from the opening kickoff, but they bogged down and Rhody took over. The 
Rams, who are noted for their fumbling (an average of 15 per game thus far) started 
off as expected and fumbled four times in as many minutes. 

Quaterback Bob Sammartino, 



end Dick Gourley, and Fullback 
Johnny Leach combined to push 
the Rams to paydirt from the U- 
Mass 47 yard stripe after Ro^er 
Barous got off a poor kick with 
Rams swamiing all over him. The 
Rams banged their way down the 
field again in the first stanza 
after recovering a UMass fumble 
at midfield. They drove 41 yards 
in eight plays for the second 
score. 

UMass struck back in the 
second period, traveling 72 yards 
for the score. This drive was 
sparked by Charlie Mellen's 24 
yard gallop, and a nice 4th down 
pass from Tommy Whalen to Bob 
Ferriani to put the Redmen in 
scoring position on the Rams 10. 
The Rams held for two plays, but 
another Whalen-to-Ferriani aerial 
brought the Redmen to the five, 
and Dick Wright banged over 
for the TD, 

This didn't scare the Rams a bit 
as they marched right back up 
the field for another score to 
make it 21-G at the half. 

Rams Refuse To Cool Down 
The intermission didn't seem 
to cool the Rams down a bit, as 
they came out in the third period 
and staged another long march 
down to the UMass 10 yard 
marker. The Redmen held here, 
but after taking over the ball, 
they fumbled and the Rams took 
over again, this time pushing all 
the way into the end zone for 
another score. 

In the final stanza, the Redmen 
went on the warpath again, fi- 
nally aided by some penaityyard- 
age, and Charlie Mellen climaxed 
the drive by shooting around his 
own left end from the five yard 
stripe into the end standing up. 

The Rams closed out the scor- 
ing late in the fourth period on 
a real razzle-dazzle bit of play. 
Art Boulet winged a pass to Bob 
Mairs, and as Mairs was being 
swarmed under by UMass de- 
fenders he flipped a lateral to 
Charron, who carried all the way 
to the UMass two before Mellen 
caught him. Boulet bucked over 
for the score, Dickey added the

The Redmen took to the air in 
desperation with only a few min- 
utes left on the clock, but al- 
though Bill Maxwell was very 
efficient, they couldn't quite 
make it to paydirt. 

Several Standout Performances 

Maxwell looked very poised in 
his first prolonged appearance 
of the season. No matter how 
much the Rams tried to hurry 
his throws he remained calm, 
and several times got aerials off 
with two or three defenders hang- 
ing all over him. Charlie Mellen 
paid his way also as he carried 
on approximatley half of the U- 
Mass plays. Several times he al- 
most shook loose for long runs, 
and he was the leading ground 
gainer for the Redmen. In his 
first return to action since the 
B.U. game, Roger Barous proved 
that he is the only one that can 
fill the defensive backer-up shoes 
adequately. 

Bob Moynihan showed promise 



of developing into a dangerous 
bucking back as he made his first 
appearance as a backfield man. 

N"ext week,the Redmen take on 
Northeastern in what, theoreti- 
cally, should be their softest 
touch of the season; however, 
with the depth and injury prob- 
lem still a big factor in the Red- 
men fortunes, it too could shape 
up to be another i-ough one for 
the luckless Redmen. 



Schwarz Hits 
Return Trail 

by JOHN McATEER 

Well, the brightest news on the 
Cross Country scene this week 
is that Pete Schwarz is back in 
business. The lanky junior from 
Lynnfield, who was never beaten 
in six dual meets as a freshman, 
had forsaken running in order 
to get a strong scholastic start 
this year. Big things were being 
hoped for from Pete and his 
loss was going to be a big blow 
to Coach Bill Footrick's plans.

Booters Smothered 6-1 
By Terrific Trinity Team 

by BILL CROTTY 

A crippled Redmen outfit, playing David to its second Goliath 
within four days, didn't have enough stones or stamina as they 
dropped their fourth straight game to a strong Trinity team at Alum- 
ni Field Saturday afternoon, 6-1. 

The battling Bantams overwhelmed the Redmen, who were con- 
siderably weakened by the loss of Lou McCarry who sustained a brok- 
en leg in the Amherst game, and Dick Golas who received bad facial 
injuries in the fray with the Jeffs. Both of these stalwarts will be out 
for the remainder of the season. 

The Redmen defense was just about terrific as they held the 
Bantams for the greater part of the first half. But then the visitors 
got lucky and lifted in two floaters in a row over the head of Lyn 
Sutcliff, The second goal, however, was well earned as it came on a 
lovely fast break by the Hilltoppers. 

Within minutes after intermission, Trinity was back on the of- 
fense, and back in the scoring column also as they pushed in two 
fast counters to sew up the contest. On a cross-field lead kick, the 
left wing charged in fast and slapped the ball home for the first tally; 
only minutes later, the ball was deep in UMass territory and the 
Bantams culminated a series of short passes by poking the ball into 
the comer of the nets. 

The lone UMass score came when Joe Morrone lifted an off-side 
kick to the g oal mouth, and Ben Doherty, who was subbing for the 

injured McCarry, faked the goalie 



The first meet of the year, which 
the University won by a perfect 
score over Williams, did not 
show the need that the UConn 
meet showed for at least one 
more top man who could be 
counted on to be in the first 
five. 

Harriers Meet Springfield Wed. 

The Redmen face Springfield 
College here Wednesday after- 
noon and they would undoubted- 
edly appreciate a little student 
support for their efforts. Mr. 
P'ootrick does not expect much 
trouble from the Gymnasts, but 
this meet is the beginning of the 
last leg of the Coach's condition- 
ing schedule which results in 
everybody hitting their peak form 
at just the right moment and a 
planned on upset of the Nutmeg 
applecart. The popular track and 
field mentor reminds us that last 
year's club lost the same way in 
an early season dual meet but 
came back to whip the Huskies 



out and rammed it home. 

The Bantams scored again on 
a direct penalty shot, and the 
third period ended with Trinity 
leading 4-1. 

The final stanza got a little 
rough, and after Billy Richards 
was involved in a slight fracas 
the referees cautioned all the 
players on both teams. The hap- 
less locals were the vicitms of 
another penalty shot that dribbled 
down center field and into the 
nets, and that was followed by a 
unique score in which a Trinity 
player with his back to the Red- 
men goal lifted the ball over his 
head and into the nets for the 
final tally of the tilt. 

Next Friday, the Redmen play 
their last home game of the sea- 
son as Bridgeport provides the 
opposition at Alumni Field.

Need Business Training Paper Sets New Calendar, 
To Govern, Doty Claims Lost-and-Found Note Policy 



Foster Doty, candidate for the First District U. S. con- 
gressional seat from Springfield, speaking here Friday to 
50 members of the Youth for Eisenhower, said that under- 
standing of human needs and extensive business ti-aining 
are requisites for capable government officials. 

"Basically," said Doty, "I 
believe that government 
should do for its citizens 

only what they cannot do for 
themselves." 

Doty called for extensive tax 
relief for small business, a strong 
federal stand on the southern 
segregation issue, social secur- 
ity benefits for all citizens, con- 
tinued foreign aid for needy 
countries and price supports for 
farmers, especially New Eng- 
land. 

Doty praised President Eisen- 
hower's nonsupport of the use 
of arms in the Suez crisis this 
past summer and said Eisenhow- 
er's negotiations averted war. 
Referring to incomplete highway 
projects is his "pet gripe." 

William Barry, chairman of 
the Youth for Eisenhower group 
here, led the discussion. Doty

From now on the Collegian will follow this policy on 
printing notices of meetings, lost and found announcements 
and similar miscellaneous matter. 

First, the paper will adhere to a schedule of publish- 
ing lost and found notes on the back page of the Monday 
edition. 

Second, the University Calendar will be included on the back 
page of the Wednesday edition. 

Items that are to be inserted in either regular feature must be 
delivered to the paper in the Mem Hall Cave the day before the paper 
will appear. Thus, lost and found notices must be received by Sunday 
afternoon, and calendar notices by Tuesday afternoon. 

Failure to meet these deadlines will delay publication of belated 
notices for one week. No exceptions will be made for special boxes. 

The calendar will run from Wednesday night through Wednesday 
night. This means that events scheduled for Wednesday after 5 p.m. 
may be included in the calendar a full week ahead of the meeting. 

If organizations or individuals find it imperative to have notices 
printed on Friday, or on days when the needed feature is not run, 
they may obtain recourse in the advertising columns of the paper. 

The managing editors hold the right to determine if an item is 
worthy of regular news coverage, and warn that announcements of 
most meetings, unless the speaker or other feature is of vital import 
to the university community, will be confined to the calendar. 

Publicity officers are advised to channel their meeting notices 
both through the official university calendar coordinating conunittee 
and the Collegian, thus insuring a double check for the paper. Miss 
Affie Cook, secretary to the president, on the second floor of South Col- 
lege, handles meeting arrangements for the calendar committee.

Alumni Association Plans 
To Take Over Mem Hall 

by BARBARA BURNE 

With the opening of the Student Union building next 
semester, the Alumni Association will begin a series of long 
term plans slated to convert Memorial Hall into an alumni 
building. 

Built in 1921 by the alumni, in memory of World War I 
veterans, Mem Hall now houses the music department and 
many student organizations. 
Plans for the conversion 
include more space for of- 
fices. Rooms that are now 

being used by the Collegum, 
Adelphia and the music depart- 
ment will be converted into one 
large room. 



SENIOR PICTURES 
Senior pictures will be ta- 
ken Oct. 29 through Nov. 16, 
from nine to six by appoint- 
ment. If it is necessary to 
change the appointment you 
have received, call Index of- 
fice after Oct. 29 



Many Changes 

The main hall upstairs, now 
being used as a lounge by the 
commuters, will be converted in- 
to a living room. 

Facilities will be available here 
for small group meetings. 

A kitchen and dining room will 
be installed downstairs. 

Alumni Growth 

At present there are 11,000 
alumni and the rolls are in- 
creased substantially with each 
graduating class. 

To keep abreast of the univer- 
sity expansion, the Alumni Asso- 
ciation hopes, through the con- 
version of the hall, to provide 
returning alumni with a place to 
congregate and talk over college 
days in pleasant surroundings.

By Op Guild 

The talent of veterans and 
newcomers alike sparks the cast 
of Paint Your Wagon, the '57 
production of the Operett^i Guild. 

Sandra Wenner, Norman Bou- 
cher, and Donald Hiller portray 
central figures in this story of 
an 1850 California gouhush. 

Doric Alviani, director of the 
Iiroductiuii, stated last night that 
it was difficult to point out defin- 
ite leading roles in the musical. 
He said that every person in the 
cast supplies an "integral part 
of what becomes a description 
of the life and death of a min- 
ing town." 

The cast is as follows:

debate in Skinner was ar- 
rived at Monday after the 

rejection of a proposal, by the 
Republicans, to hold an outdoor, 
rally-type debate. 

William Barry, chairman of 
the Youth for Eisenhower group, 
suggested that an outdoor rally 
precede the debate. Barry claimed 
this would work up enthusiasm 
in the student body. 

Helen O'Leary, Young Demo- 
crats chairman, argued that emo- 
tionalism is what the Demo- 
crats wish to avoid. 

They would rather have an in- 
tellectual approach to the sub- 
ject by the debaters and the 
audience, she said. 

Joseph McNeil, also a Young 
Democrat, said he felt the out- 
door rally would exclude inde- 
pendents who have no particular 
affiliations. 

The debate, to be broadcsist 
over WMUA will consist of four 
eight minute presentations end- 
ing with two of five minutes. 

Names of the six debaters who 
will participate will be announced 
later. 

Monday's meeting also estab- 
lished that the all campus mock 
elections, under the chairman- 
ship of Robert Haskins, wiM be 
concerned with only national 
candidates. 

The mock elections are sched- 
uled for October 31. 

Jo Ann Donahue, secretary of 
the debating society, stressed 
the need for volunteers for work 
on the mock elections. 



Foreign Students 
Have Reception 

The annual reception for stu- 
dent.s from other lands will be 
ht'ld tonight at 7:30 p.m. in Skin- 
ner Aud. 

The nM'( plion by invitation is 
for 'AO foreign stu<lents repre- 
.senting 17 countries and will be 
held by the Advisory Board for 
Foreign .'^tiidoiits. 

Chairman of the Advisory 
Board, Sidney Wcxlrr of tht> De- 
partment of Romance Lannu.tgea, 
stated that the reoeplioii is meant 
to say "welcome, glad you're 
here" to the foreign students. 

.Memher.s of the administnition, 
deans, and department heads as 
well as students from vital cam-

vited said Wexler. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1956 



5t|g jMaaaartjUBrtlB Qlollrgtatt 

Editorial 

When the Sigma Kappa incident first 
came to light many of us felt sjTnpathy for 
the UM chapter of Sigma Kappa for the un- 
pleasant situation in which it found itself — 
the innocent local embarrassed by the sins of 
its national. 

Now, many weeks later, the situation has 
changed, and, with it, our sympathies. In 
all this time, the local group has demon- 
strated not a sign of embarrassment — has 
neither protested against the action of the 
national, nor even expressed its owti anti- 
pathy to the practice and theory of discrim- 
ination, as have the other fraternities here, 
with and without clauses. It has even failed 
to be represented at a meeting with Boston 
legislators designed to discuss its problem. 

On a campus where the fraternities as a 
whole, including those who have clauses, 
have expi'essed their opposition to discrim- 
ination and have demonstrated their deter- 
mination to fight it in the national, Sigma 
Kappa stands as the single exception. The 
Collegian applauds Theta Chi and Kappa 
Sigma for their efforts to rid their nationals 
of this blot, and Phi Sigma Kappa for its 
successful campaign. These houses have not 
been afraid to voice their opposition to a 
practice which violates all their moral sensi- 
bilities. 

But Sigma Kappa, faced with an obvious 
practice every bit as objectionable as a writ- 
ten clause, has done nothing, said nothing, 
and by its unwillingness to range itself with 
the other fraternities and sororities on the 
side of opposition to discrimination, has dem- 
onstrated pretty conclusively its unwilling- 
ness to combat it within the national. Its 
apparent abject fear of defending what we 
can only guess to be its own feelings and 
principles, however mildly, against the na- 
tional have made it guilty of moral irres- 
ponsibility and have shown it to be unwill- 
ing to engage with the rest of us in the long 
hard battle against national-imposed bias. 

When the issue broke in the press, Sigma 
Kappa had a clear duty, to itself, to the fra- 
ternity system and to the university to state 
unequivocally its opposition to discrimina- 
tion, as Theta Chi and the others have done. 
Instead, it neglected its duty and sat back, 
tacitly appearing to condone the national's 
action, and thereby almost inviting the leg- 
islative interference which they might have 
helped to curtail by showing a willingness 
to fight their own battle. 

Where, in what action, in what statement 
has the local sorority shown that its s>Tnpa- 
thies are not with the deplorable action of its 
national? And if it is fear of expulsion by 
the national that prevents it from expressing 
even tlio takon-for-granted Northern opinion 
of discrimination, then what kind of a na- 
tional aflliliation is it that refuses to its mem- 
ber organizations exercise of the most basic 
rights of freedom of expression and freedom 
of conscience? 

In the light of the discrimination prac- 
ticed by national Sigma Kappa, which we 
deem to be at least as obnoxious as a writ- 
ten clause, and shocked by the local's atti- 
tude of silent acceptance, we ask that the 
administration request the local to demon- 
strate that it is working against bias in the 
national. Should the gi'oup fail to do so in a 
reasonable time stated by the administration, 
then wo see no further reason for tolerating 
the existence of the national Sigma Kappa on 
this campus, and would ask that this national 
be excluded from the university so as not to 
hamper it in its otherwise united war on 
discrimination.

The Land Of JAZZ 

(Third in a series of articles) 

Densely populating the West Coast scene of today's 
jazz are a group of young and talented musicians stemming 
from the effects of Stan Kenton and Gerry Mulligan. It is 
hard to evaluate them into an orderly system of rank, but 
certainly among the highest is Shorty Rogers and his 
"giants." 

Shorty, a one-time protege of Stan Kenton, has intro- 
duced to jazz a vital step in the newer aspect of swing. Pro- 
ducing sounds which are fresh and stimulating to the ear, 
Mr. Rogers has an uncanny imagination which he utilizes to 
the maximum. The capabilities of his sidemen and the ver- 
satility of their instruments are outstanding. 

At an early stage of his career, Shorty was an arranger 
for the Kenton orchestra, while at the same time he played 
a "mean trumpet" himself. Branching out on his own his 
first attempts were aided by such all-time greats as May- 
nard Ferguson, Milt Bernhardt, Shelley Manne, Conte Can- 
doli, and others. Here again, we have what appears to be 
a miniature Kenton band. 

With groups similar to the above mentioned, Shorty 
has kept active with ordinary "jam" sessions and regular 
recording dates for RCA Victor. To the reader who is fam- 
iliar with the "Swinging Mr. Roger" the fact that Shoi-ty 
was responsible for much of the music in "The Man with 
the Golden Arm" is new knowledge. Although most of the 
sound tract was composed by Elmer Bernstein, all the jazz 
sequences were ])erformcd by the Rogers band. Throughout 
these sequences Shorty performs on an unusual instrument 
known as the flugelhorn. A member of the cornet family, 
a flugelhorn is in reality a valve bugle, usually set in the 
key of B\j. Shorty uses this instrument in many of his ar- 
rangements because it is possessed of a mellower tone than 
a trumpet or a cornet. 

One of Shorty's more notable albums for RCA Victor 
is Cool and Crazy, in which the Rogers' individuality and 
technique are displayed to the fullest. The outstanding 
numbers from this album are ; The Sweetheart of Sigmund 
Freud, Infinity Promenade, and Co7ip de Grains. All of these 
swing in the typical Rogers' style, and are remarkable ex- 
amples of Shorty's arranging talents. Although somewhat 
on the idea of the Sautcr-Finnegan type of arrangements. 
Infinity Promenade is a freshly styled little number which, 
like most of the Rogers' repertoire, is an original composi- 
tion by Shorty. 

The style employed by Mr. Rogers is light and gay. 
It puts to use the "newer sounds" in harmonics which are 
so predominant in west coast jazz to<la> . In the opinion of 
this writer, Shorty Rogers represents the highest caliber 
of modern jazz. 

Letters To The Editor... 



To the Editor: 

I have written the following 
article after nadin^ Mr. Steven- 
son's proposal of disposing of all 
H-Bomb tests. The opinions fol- 
lowing 3r<> not only mine, but 
those of other veterans on cam- 
pus. 

The Collfftian'if duty is to bring 
local and national news of im- 



portance to the sttident s nnd fac- 
ulty's attention. So far. I have 
.seen litlli> iti tlii> Colli iji^ni to in- 
dicate that there is presently a 
national election cr.mpuiKTi for 
tlio pre.siidency of the UnittMl 
St.'ites in progress. How alx)ut 
those students who cannot afford 
a local newspaper, or do not have 
their noses out of their books long 
enough to read a newspaper 



More Letters... 

To the Editor: 

Before the opening of school this fall, we were 
approached by two Collegian reporters and were 
asked for a statement concerning Chi Omega's stand 
on discrimination. We wondered why we were ques- 
tioned since we were only sophomores and not yet 
fully acquainted with Chi Omega's policies and 
practices. 

Because of this fact, we innocently stated that 
we believed there was a clause in existence. How- 
ever, upon further inquiry and instruction, we dis- 
covered that Chi Omega has no such discriminatory 
clause. We think of Chi Omega as a democratic or- 
ganization and are grateful for its friendships and 
inspirations. We are sorry if we have caused any 
misunderstandings concerning the fraternity. 

If anyone wishes further information pertain- 
ing to Chi Omega and its policies, we advise them 
to approach the fraternity as a whole and not se- 
lected individuals. 

(Names withheld by request) 



Although I humbly accept chastisement for my 
grammatical errors in a recent letter, I hardly think 
it safe or desirable for all of us to let an individual, 
who can not even perform the simpler functions of 
copying a fragment of a sentence ("If we chose to 
no longer . . .), or spelling a short name correctly 
(Schine), set himself up as a final authority on log- 
ical reasoning. Notwithstanding this shortcoming, 
I stand in awe of the capacity of a mind which can 
articulate such gross misrepresentation of the facts 
in so few words. 

By his own admission Mr. Putnam believes that 
the Marshall Plan, Berlin air-lift, aid to starving 
India in 1952, etc., were all part of a big car and 
cash give away program. Actually, what these so- 
called greedy nations have been seeking is our aid 
in getting them onto their feet and started down 
the road to self-determination which we travelled 
ourselves in what, unfortunately, seems to be for 
some of us the forgotten past. The recent complaint 
has been that we, ourselves, have tried to buy the 
loyalty and dictate the internal policies of these 
countries. 

As much as I deplore this type of thinking, I ap- 
prove of Mr. Putnam's candid statement of his po- 
litical views. I am proud that we have a Republi- 
can on this campus who is not afraid to state his 
beliefs, even though he represents a political type 
which Walter Lippmann has labeled "the adversaries 
of democracy." However, on the good side again, 
he is a veritable, one man "truth squad." I strongly 
recommend that some loyal Republican send a copy 
of his letter along to the main "truth squad" headed 
by Vice-President Nixon. Surely it would be an in- 
spiration, and I know of no man in public life today 
who is so in need of a shining example of how to 
tell the real truth about his political life and his 
party's philosophy than Mr. Nixon. 

Incidentally, the only thing that Mr, Stevenson's 
hands are full of are the many proposals which he 
is offering to the American people so that they will 
know what to expect from the Democrats during 
the next four years. A warm smile is nice, but can 
it generate enough energy to rim the coxintry, in the 
years ahead? 

Philip J. Shine 

lengthier than four pages. The Collegian, then, 
should bring the important issues to these students. 

Mr. Stevenson claims he can abolish the threat 
of another world war in a short time. At the same 
time, incidentally, we can increa.se the national 
treasury balance greatly, and reduce taxes. 

Mr. Stevenson would have us stop testing our 
H-Bombs and other nuclear devices. He claims these 
tests can change the world's climates and our stock- 
pile can even blow the earth out of its orbit! Now, 
suppose we adopt Mr. Stevenson's proposal. These 
weapons soon become obsolete. If we have fifteen 
hundred of these devices stockpiled, which we sell 
at one million dollars each, our net profit is some 
one and one-half billion dollars. We may as well 
throw in our arsenal of atom cannons, atomic sub- 
marines, and the suddenly useless Air Force for a 
few more billion dollars. The national treasury never 
looked so good! 

Nor, it should be obvious tJiat if we were to sell 
our arsen.ils of H-Bombs to, say country "R"; and 
if we were to stop our development and testing of 
these devices, ih. ro would not bt? any threat of 
another world war in a very short time. The only 
rosi.stance we would bav(^ to counter "R's" occu- 
pational army would be !>y a disorganized ifroup of 
children with their B-B guns! 

Come now, Adlai! Are you really serious?

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 24. 1956 



WW Award To Mellen 
For Showing At R.I. 

For the third consecutive weekend, the University of Massachu- 
setts athletic teams failed to produce a winner. 

But the Wellworth Pharmacy, as it has been doing for a year 

now. did produce one. n v. 

It's Charlie Mellen, the high-stepping halfback from Lowell, who 
edged out sophomore quarterback Billy Maxwell in the closest ballot- 
ing of the 1956-57 season. „ ^ ^u r>^ 

Choo Choo Charlie had his best day of 1956 Saturday as the Red- 
men gridders went down to their third straight defeat, 34-14, to 

Rhode Island. 

The shifty senior scored one touchdown and set up another to pro- 
vide the ground spark for UMass. Movies of the game proved he was 

a yoeman on defense, too. .i. « i 

Although the issue was decided several mmutes before the final 

whistle, Charlie never gave up Saturday. 

He played stop-and-go like a New York taxi, and seldom got 

bumped, either. ,

STOCKBRIPGE SPORTS 

Aggies Batter Monson 27-6; 
Entire Squad Sees Action 

by JOHN McATEER 

The Stockbridge Aggies put together a smooth running oflFense 
and a stonewall defense to overwhelm Monson Academy 27-6 last 

Friday afternoon. , « j 

John Holmes figured in two of the Aggies' scores as he fired a 
lack or ciepin oeyunu ..« v«^ pass to John Fiorini for the first TD and scampered around his own 
sparkplugs, Jim Keelon and Dick right end for the second Aggie tally. Frank Olbrych, one of the best 



Little Redmen 
Edged 27-28 

by STEVE NEEDEL 

Lack of depth beyond its two 



Atkinson, again spelled defeat 
for the Frosh Harriers as they 
were edged out 27-28 by Mount 
Hermon Saturday on the opiX)n- 
ents' home course. 

Keelon, versatile runner from 
Quincy, ran his strongest race 
in posting his first victory of 
the season over the hilly two 
and 7/10 mile course. Right be- 
hind Keelon was Atkinson in 
second place, 75 yards to the 

rear. 

Atkinson led for the greater 
part of the distance, but with 



running backs ever in Coach Kosakowski's charge, culminated a long 
drive in which he ripped up some large hunks of yardage by driving 
over from the 15 yard stripe. The final Aggie score came when 
"Rebel" Johnston intercepted a Monson pass and galloped 35 yards to 

paydirt. 

The lone Monson TD happened in the last second of play on a 

long desperation pass. 



only % mile left Keelon over- 
took him and romped home for 
the victory. Bill Knowlton fin- 
ished next in line for the little 
Redmen as he trotted in sixth 
place, with Everett Brinson plac- 
ing tenth for Coach Horn's 
charges.

r^/ iQ 1-^^.^^.ifirP Wins SAE Tops Lambda Chi »-/ 



Of 13 Consecutive Wins 

Amidst all the fanfare and hoopla that attends the intramural 

football season, one outfit confidently sits back and contemplates their 
lootpgii ^ ^^.^ ^^^^^j^ ^.^j^ ^^^ sagacity of 

veterans. These are the "Old 
Tads," winners of the Indepen- 
dent League last year, and unde- 
deated in two years of league 
play thus far. 

No one else on the campus can 
boast such a record as the Tads 
have run up. They have racked 
up 13 consecutive league victor- 
ies, and the only loss they have 
suffered was in the intramural 
championship finals last year 
when they bowed to Sig Ep. 

Don't say "What's in a name 
to these boys?" as they are sure 
that a name can mean luck. 
Originally known as the "Re- 
jects", they conceived the desig- 
nation of "Old Tads" last year. 
The name fits as most of the 
players are not young sprouts. 
But don't be deceived into think- 



Bosco's Boys 
Open Soon 

With a flurry of flips and 
flops, the UMass Gymnastic team 
unofficially opened their season 
Friday night in an exhibition at 
Punchard High School in An- 
dover, !Mass. 

Under the able leadership of 
Coach Jim Bosco the Redmen 
should show quite an improve- 
ment over their last year's show- 
ing. They were a neophyte outfit 
then, but this season they boast 
of having some reasoned vet- 
erans in the persons of Max 
Stosz, Allen Moench, Charles 
Leverone, and Done Forrester. 

Anyone interested in joining 
the squad is invited to try out.

SAE retained possession of first place in the intramural fraternity 
league by defeating a determined CA outfit 8-7 Monday mgh. be- 
fore the largest crowd to witness a mural tilt this year 

LCA led throughout most of the contest on the strength of a 
Buddv Frye-Cassidy aerial and a placement by Cassidy. SAE picked 
up 2 points on a safety when Bob Albertini drove through and tagged 

Frye in the LCA end zone. 

Lambda Chi appeared to have the game wrapped up late m the 
second^alf when Jack Tarpey intercepted a McCafferty aerial, but 
the Sunset Ave. Boulevardiers came up with an interception which 
was foUowed by a sustained drive culminated by McCafferty's plunge 
^-"^ t ^e 2 yard stripe. ^^^^^ ^^^^^^ ^^^ ^^ ^^^^ 

Scalzi and Bob Albertini looked 
exceptionally good on defense, 
and as usual George McCaffer- 
ty's passing arm was strong. 

Because of a dispute over a 
ruling following a holding pen- 
alty and a slight fracas, LCA 
has protested the tilt. The result 
ol this protest will be known fol- 
lowing Thursday night's intra- 
mural council meeting. 



The tilt was marked by some 
fine runs by the Aggies. Paul 
Restuccia came up with a 40 
yard sprint in addition to 01- 
brych's and Holmes' fine runs. 

Stockbridge controlled the ball 
throughout the game, and the 
entire Aggie squad saw action. 
The Nowers twins added to the 
general confusion of the oppon- 
ents (in fact they keep Coach 
Kosakowski buffaloed as to which 
is who). 

Next Saturday, the Aggies run 
up against New Hampton Acad- 
emy in a traveling affair at New 

Hampshire. 



ing that they travel via canes 
and wheelchairs because once 
they set foot on the turf they 
provide some rugged opposition. 
This year their roster includes 
such sterling performers as: 
Jim Walsh, Dick Coleman, Tom 
Dumphey, Joe Sullivan, Bob 
Scales, Tweeds McClellan, Biff 
Cuniff, Ed Anderson, and Ed

TjiVEN if you are just starting college in the "Class of 1960," 
^ we suggest that you take a long look at where you are going. 
Know, don't guess, what is offered by fields like engineering and 
science, finance, marketing and relations. Too often young 
people discover late in their senior year that they can't qualify 
for the career of their choice. Why be caught short? Selecting a 
career and knowing what is expected will make it possible for 
you to prepare for it now. Many graduates will find their place 
with industry. 

General Electric is typical of many large industrial concerns. 
We employ over 27,000 college graduates from nearly 700 differ- 
ent colleges and universities. And our future, as the future of any 
progressive company, hinges on these people. Young men and 
women that have initiative, analytical and creative ability will 
make progress with industry. If you are interested, write for 
information about one or more of the programs listed on this 
page. These are the principal doorways to success at General 
Electric. The booklets can also be found at most college place- 
ment bureaus in a binder entitled "Career Information."

"Music in the Park" will be the theme of the Forty- III llwll wll I U U 1 1 CI Iv LI WU llUli 



"Music in the Park" will be the theme of the Forty- 
fourth Annual Horticultural Show at the Curry Hicks Gym- 
nasium at the univei*sity on November 2, 3 and 4. 

The show is sponsored by the College of Agriculture 
at the university in cooperation with the music department. 
The Curry Hicks gymnasium floor area ^vill be covered with 
trees, flower beds, and lawn. From this area a series of 
concerts will be given during the three-day event. Park 
benches will line the center turf panel, giving those who 
wish to relax an advantageous spot for listening to the 
music. 

STUDENT EXHIBITS WILL BE ERECTED 

Two large commercial exhibits will flank the concert 
stand. Student and departmental exhibits will be under the 
gymnasium balcony. Between twelve and fifteen student 
exhibits are expected to be erected for the show which is 
free to the public. 

Students participating in the exhibit division of the 
show will have their choice of five classes in w^hich to com- 
pete, Robert Leaver, student chairman in charge, said. 

Classes include modern and/or architectural, formal, 
naturalistic, and educational. Student exhibits are to be 
ten feet by ten feet and may be full scale or miniature. 

MONEY PRIZES WILL BE AWARDED 

Students must submit a proposed plan of their exhibit 
in Curry Hicks gj^mnasium. A maximum of four students 
w^ill be allowed per exhibit. 

Prizes will help provide interest in the student com- 
petition, Chairman Leaver said. The Massachusetts Asso- 
ciation of Nurserymen is contributing $200 for prizes to 
be distributed as their judges see fit. The Massachusetts 
Department of Agriculture is allotting prize money of $150 
to be distributed by its judges as follows: $20 and $10 for 
first and second prize in each or the five classes, respectively. 
In addition, a sweepstakes ribbon will be awarded for the 
best exhibit in the show. 

Sophomore Class Meets 
Traffic Problem Discussed 

Oflficers of the sophomore class today announced their 
intention of working with the Senate Traffic Committee to 
find a solution to the trafl^c problem on campus. 

Dean Robert S. Hopkins has announced that he will 
recommend that only seniors be allowed to have cars on 
campus next year because of the problem of congested park- 
ing areas. Robert Dallmeyer, president of the sophomore 
class said that the class ofl^cers have not as yet worked out 
a solution to the problem but they have informed the Dean 
of their desire to cooperate with the Traffic Committee. 

Dallmeyer made the announcement yesterday at what 
was termed a "very successful" meeting of the class of 1959. 
Names of the committee chaiiinen for this year were also 
made known. 

Sarah Varanka and Anthony Favello were named 
chairman of the So-ph-^.-i riior H(.p Chosen Sophomore Ban-

Morrissey Resigns 
As Placement Officer 

Robert J. Morrissey, Placement Officer for Men, has 
announced his resignation from that position. The resig- 
nation will take effect on November 30. No successor has 
yet been named to the post. 

Morrissey will be connected with the personell depart- 
ment of the electronics system division Ox" Sylvania Elec- 
tronics Products, Inc., with headquarters in Waltham, Mass. 

He stated that he will be doing work in college rela- 
tions, visiting colleges to acquaint them with this division's 
activities. He \W11 be in touch with the placement officers 
and engineering professors in many eastern colleges. His 
work will be to interview engineering students and he will, 
"of course come to the University of Massachusetts to find 
the real outstanding people I know are here." 

Morrissey came to the university first at the Fort Dev- 
ens division where he acted as Supervisor of Guidance from 
1946 to 1948. He came to the University at Amherst as As- 
sistant Placement Oflficer in 1948. He handled veterans' af- 
fairs, agriculture, and teacher placement. In 1952, Morris- 
sey was promoted to Placement Officer for Men, the posi- 
tion he has held until his resignation. In this position he 
has handled the men's placement for seniors and alumni in 
business and industry; scientific, technical, and general- 
pn)fessional fields as well as campus employment. 

Morrissey's personal comment was: "I have enjo^^ed 
my years here tremendously, partly from working with the 
outstanding youth that have been and are studying at the 
university and my association with the outstanding staff 
here. Because of these personal associations which have 
been so gratifying. I deeply regret leaving the university. 
But I am entering a new position which is both exciting 
and challenging and I am delighted that I will be able to 
retain many of my associations here while in this work."

Miss Winegard and Miss Kirk,

Senate Slogans 

Six weeks after the opening of school, the 
Student Senate is finally rid of its "lame 
duck" senators, headed by permanent offic- 
ers, and ready to start to work. 

Forty-one members sti'ong, the 1956-1957 
senate, at its first meeting Wednesday night, 
found itself with 55.09 percent of its mem- 
bers completely new to the organization. 
This means that less than half (18 out of 41) 
of the members of our student government 
have had any previous senate experience 
whatsoever. 

However, the group elected a slate of of- 
ficers who, it can be safely said, are the best 
qualified solons for their jobs. Larry Par- 
rish, Marcia Winegard and Ricky Kirk as 
president, vice-president and secretary, res- 
pectively, are all veteran senators and know 
the problems of the campus; while Jerry 
Lefkowitz, the new treasurer, is thoroughly 
experienced in organizational finance of the 
university. 

Understanding the problems of inexperi- 
ence, the Collegian nevertheless is looking 
towards the Senate for important campus 
problem solving as well as improvements and 
innovations in university student govern- 
ment this year. We would like to see: 

(1) the problem of fraternity and soror- 
ity membership discrimination tackled and 
dealt with in a constrv.ctive ivay, perhaps 
suggesting and influencing the administra- 
tion in the new policy that President Mather 
has indicated is forthcoming. 

(2) the solving of the serious university 
traffic conditions before the year is over. 
This can only be done by finding a workable 
solution to the limited parking accommoda- 
tions — a new parking lot. How can one be 
built by September of 1957 f Find out. 

(3) a thorough revieiv and perhaps a re- 
vamping of Men's and Women's Judiciaries 
defining their area of activity, their powers, 
and their relationship to the administration. 

(U) the final and official changing of the 
alma ynater to "When Twilight Shadows 
Deepen." 

(5) iynprovement of the Dining Commons 
both in service and organization. 

(6) a recommendation that ALL FOUR 
"honor societies" require a minimum average 
for its members. (Scrolls and Mortar Board 
already hare such a requirement.) 

(7) the ironing out of the humiliating 
and messy "kinks" in the ID card problem. 

(8) continued harrassment of the Univer- 
sity Buildings and Grounds Department — 
last summer's results proved it works. 

(9) a bigger, stronger and ultimately suc- 
cessful campaign for the installation of cig- 
arette machines in the women's dorms.

Station WMUA Founded In 
1951, Now Serves UM Better 
Than Commercial Stations 

by Barbara Kelley 

In the Spring of 1956, WMUA moved from up 
top to down below. But only geographically. 

Facilities were shifted from the top floor of 
South College to new studios in the Engineering 
Building basement. 

However, viewing WMUA performancewise, the 
station's movement has been continually upward. At 
present, our campus radio station is able to serve us 
better than many professional, commercial stations. 

From AM to FM 

What is now WMUA, began as WFDM back dur- 
ing World War II when the university maintained 
an extension service at Fort Devens. Facilities were 
considerably limited and homemade. In 1948, the 
equipment was transported to Amherst where a stu- 
dent station with the call letters WMSC was strug- 
gling along. The two merged to form an AM station 
called WMUA — Massachusetts University, Amherst. 

As a result of crowded AM bands, WMUA be- 
came licensed on FM in 1951 and many student sta- 
tions followed. In every phase of its operation, 
WMUA has rapidly advanced to the effective station 
now operating.

Home Of Bugs, Math 

Now Speech 

The recently decided move of the offices 
of the Speech Department to the dilapidated 
white building on the Southeast end of ciim- 
pus is proposing a problem. 

The now ( ?) quarters (a previously con- 
demned building, rumor has it) is known as 
the Math Building and it needs a new name. 
Never more will the 1001 tortures of math 7 
be conducted there. 

It was suggested last week that the name 
of the building should be the same as it was 
before mathematics whitened its black- 
boards. 

But the name, it was discovered, was or- 
iginally and officially "The Insect House." 
Because of the obvious connotations of this 
title, the idea was promptly rejected. 

The answer to this search for a name for 
the home of one of the university's newest 
departments is, of course, "The Tower of 
Babel." 



Three Core Depts. 

As in any radio station, the three mnst signifi- 
cant departments are the technical, operations, and 
programming. 'The Technical Department, under the 
expert direction of Dick Lavigne, an electrical engin- 
eering major from Tittsfield. is responsible for 
maintaining the entire mass of equipment. All oper- 
ating facilities are brand new. The WMUA studio 
itself, so effectively designed by Prof. W. Worcester 
Smith, can }>e easily converted to accommodate tele- 
vision. 

The Technical Department builds all its own teat 
equipment. For coverage of sports and special 
events, direct telephone lines to Bowker, Skinner 
and the Cage have been set up. 

The Operations Department is directed by Don 
Torres, a sophomore history major from New Bed- 
ford, and station "jack of all trades". He is capable 
of anno u n c { n g 
and handling the 
controls with 
amazing smooth- 
ness. An impres- 
sive number of 
students are !!• 
censed 3rd class 
FCC operators. 

WMUA'a pro- 
gramming is un- 
der the capable, 
profossion.'il direr, 
tion of David Cul- 
len, a junior from 
Pittsfield. The 
program system 
is patterned from 
one of the finer 
professional New 
York stations.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. FRIDAY. OCTOBER 26, 1956 



Redmen Two TD Favorite 
Over Northeastern 

Another group of growling Huskies invade the UMass 
campus Saturday afternoon. From all reports, howev-er 
the Northeastern pack lacks the ferocity displayed by the 
mad dogs from UConn. 



Waterboy Biggest Redman; 
Sets New Hammer Mark 



The Redmen will certainly be 
putting out one of their best 
efforts as they perform for their 
parents on the traditional Fath- 
ers' Day. An interesting side- 
light is that several of the Red- 
men will be putting on the show 
for their children also. 

Once again Charlie O'Rourke 
has shuffled his lineup, and Tink 
Connolly will move from the 
starting tackle slot to that of 
starting guard in an effort to 
"bolster the middle of the thin 
UMass line. Dan Desmond will 
attempt to fill the large size 



brogans left by Tink at the 
starting tackle spot. This move 
could be the one to start the 
Redmen on the winning trail 
again. Connolly is Coach 
O'Rourke's ace 60 minute man, 
and the switch will enable the 
smaller but very capable Jim 
Dolan to take some breathers 
during the tilt. 

This week we will again ven- 
ture to make a prediction, and 
a real surpriser it is. 

UMass to humble the Huskies 
by two TD's.

by JOEL WOLFSON 

If there is a wistful look in 
Coach Charlie O'Rourke's eyes as 
he watches his waterboy trot out 
onto the field tomorrow, you can 
be sure he has a good reason. 

O'Rourke s probably the only 
coach in the country who wishes 
he could start his waterboy. Joe 
Cardello, 6*4" and 254 pounds, 
will be carrying out buckets in- 
stead of blocking assignments to- 
morrow. 

Much to the chagrin of Coach 
Charles, who is looking for re- 
placements for his wafer-thin 
line, Joe has used up his eligi- 
iblity. O'Rourke is expected to 
start Bill "Tinker" Connolly at 
right guard and shift converted 
center Dan Desmond to left 
tackle. Cardello could easily fill 
the bill at any spot, especially 
the tackle slot where he has 
steamrolled opposition for the 
past few years. 

Cardello, a phys ed major, 
graduates from the university in 
February and is ineligible to 
play ball this season. 

Joe loves the sport so much 
that he signed up as assistant 
manager for the opportunity to 
lug the agua piira around the 
gridiron every Saturday after- 
noon. Two days a week, he trav- 
els to Palmer High School, 
where he helps coach the line, 
gaining valuable experience for 
next year when he hopes to be- 
come a schoolboy coach. 

Last year, Big Joe was used 
effectively in several spots by 
Coach O'Rourke. Without a 
doubt his best collegiate game 
was against the Huskies of 
Northeastern last season. He was 
as dynamic as a time bomb, as 
he exploded to manhandle Gene 
Renzi an all New England pick 
at tackle. Yes, we won that game 
by a score of .33-13. The win was 
due mostly to the gaping holes 
made by Cardello which allowed 
the fleet UMass backs to zoom 
through for large hunks of 
yardage. It was a similar sit- 
uation to the one in which we 




CAN YOU TOP THIS? The man who must easily be the biggest 
waterboy in New England, JOE CARDELLO, towers over backs 
FRED lOSUE (left) and JOHN "DOC" ENOS. Big Joe was a 
tackle for the Redmen last year and loves the game so «n"cJJ»« 
remained as a manager after his eligibility was exhausted. Mr.

find ourselves a year later. 
Massachusetts was in the throes 
of a three game losing streak 
and the Huskies were a two 
touchdown favorite. After watch- 
ing Cardello perform, North- 
eastern Coach Joe Zabilski rushed 
over to O'Rourke and asked, 
"where have you been hiding the 
big guy all season?" 

Joe is one of the strongest 
men ever to appear on the cam- 
pus scene. The first time he 
threw the thirty-pound hammer, 
he shattered the school record. 
Joe is co-captain of Bill Foot-

Cornell President Pailhel Xca 
Questions Nat'l SK 



{Sftecial to the Cullecian from the 
Cornell Sin.) 

FollowinK ia the text of the letter 
aent by Tornell University President 
Deane W. Malott to Sirma Kappa Na- 
tional President Mrs. Field Brown, of 
Denver, Colorado. The letter was sent 
Oct. 3. 

"Cornell University is very much 
concerned ahotit the unexpected action 
which you have talten in "suspending" 
the Cornell chapter of Sigmft Kappa. 

"I am aware of the difficulties of 
maintaininK what seems to be your i>ol- 
icy, in the face of various pressures and 
jMints of view. We, too have similar 
problems as our students seek a way 
of life which meeta their needs and 
justifies their own sense of justice. When 
national organizations determine the 
way in which Cornell students shall live, 
with whom they associate, and under 
what conditions, you inevitably come 
into an area of concern to me as Pres- 
ident of Cornell University. 

"The young ladies comprising the 
active chapter of Sigma Kappa at Corn- 
ell apparently violated no provision of 
their charter, nor did their action ap- 
pear in the slightest to transcend the 
good taste which we demand of oar 
students. While you have been unwill- 
ing to state the cause of the "suspen- 
sion" it seems entirely clear to all of 
us why the action was taken. 

"What do you propose to do 7 Our local 
chapter would prefer to retain its na- 
tional affiliation ; it does, however, hold 
high its right to select members on the 
the basis of congeniality and merit. My 
own position is one of defending our 
local chapter in its decision ; I support 
all local chapters of our fraternity sys- 
tem in seeking the right to exercise 
their discretion in selecting members. 

"It may become desirable for me to 
make a public statement of Cornell's 
position in regard to the action you have 
taken. Hence my further desire to know 
jrour plans, and to be informed of any 
further action which you may contem- 
plate. 

"It is unlikely that Cornell University 
will be willing to accept the restoration 
of the suspended charter without some 
assurance, either in public statement or 
made directly to me, that the chapter 
and the University in the future will 
not be subjected to this sort of unex- 
plained and unexplainable action on the 
part of the national officers of Sigma 
Kappa. 

"W^e have assumed that the fraterni- 
ties on our campus are here to Berv« 
the best interests of the students of the 
University. This they cannot do if na- 
tional officers take action with no con- 
sultation with us, and with no oppor- 
tunity for cooperation between us. 

"I am shocked to learn, for instance, 
that a national officer of Sigma Kappa 
was on our campus, without any offic- 
er of the University knowing of her 
visit. 

"I should like to hear from you 
promptly, in order that we may take 
euch further steps as wc deem desirable, 
in what to us is an intolerable situation 
if not resolved with despatch."

6 Debaters Announced 
For UM Political Joust 



A covey of six debaters will hash out the issues in- 
volved in the coming national elections tomorrow night at 
Bowker. 

The switch to Bowker came about last Friday when 
Young Democrats and Youth for Eisenhower leaders agreed 
that Skinner would not hold the anticipated number of spec- 
tators. 



At the same time chair- 
men Miss Helen O'Leary and 

William Barry decided to omit 
the usual formal rebuttal and re- 
place it with a question period 
at the end of the debate. 

Questions from the floor will 
be fired at Philip Shine, Miss 
Janet Gorman, and Joseph Mc- 
Parland, who will represent the 
Democrats. Answering for the 
Youth for Eisenhower will be 
Craig Preston, Miss Marilyn 
Swift, and Robert Brown. 

No speeches will be allowed 
from the floor and questions must 
be given to each party alter- 
nately. 

The issues under discussion will 
be foreign policy, domestic policy, 
and the general philosophy of 
both parties. 

Shine and Brown will have five 
minutes each to present domestic 
policies. The same time limit 
goes to McParland and Preston 
for foreign policies. 

Miss Grorman and Miss Swift 

will havr eight minutes to di.scuss 
the general philosophies.

Scott-Free Til Thursday 

Progress On Stude nt Union 
Awaits Arrival Of Director 



When William H. Scott ar- 
rives on campus Thursday 
from Texas to begin direc- 
tion of the Student Union, 
he will not be able to take a 
shower. 

At least, Hot in Uie Stu- 
dent Union. 

But once the two-million dollar 
play center opens he'll be able 
to freshen up under a stream of 
hot water in a shower stall just 
off his .second-floor oflice. 

The shower, which will also 
lie available to other male Union 
staffers, is only one of a series 
of features and facts revealed 
yesterday as the wraps were 
removed from the recommenda- 
tions of the Union's advisory 
Committee. 

Committee Ended In July 

That committee was disbanded 
in July and currently no group 
(»f students has a controlling 
hand in Union affairs. 

However, slmuld Scott accept 
an advisory committee recom- 
mendation, 17 students would 
team with two faculty members 
anjl two alumni to fnini the 
Union Board of (Invernors, 

Whilo Scdtt may lejcct the 
idea entirely, or may substan- 
tially or only slightly revise the 
rocommendalinn, the propo.sal ia 
designed to cn'ate a governing 
board of 24 which would he di- 
rectly responsible to the SU di- 



rector. 

Scott himself will be respon- 
sible to the president of the 
university. 

As proposed by the advisory 
committee, the first Union Board 
of Governors would have three 
non-voting mpml>*»r<!, the Deans 
of Men and Women nnd the di- 
rector, the two alumni and two 
teachers mentioned before, and 
the 17 students. 

The first board would be picked 
thus: 

The president of the student 
senate would choose three sen- 
ators and 14 other students. All 
17 would have to l)e approved by 
Mather before they could take 
their seats on the board. 

In succeeding years the board 
Would be similarly composed 
(two f.iculty, two alumni, 17 
students, all voting; and the 
three non-vnting members) but 
differently picked. 
.*^tudenl» Dominate liovernors 

Selection would be by a sul> 
commit ti'c of the boai-d made up 
of four governors, four mem- 
bers of the student .senate exec- 
utive board, and headed by the 
presidiMit of the senate. 

Thus liolh selection committee 
Mtid Hoard of (K)vernor8 would 
be dominated by students. The 
I lection body woidd have the 
senators, and perhaps student 
members of the ho.ard, guaran- 
teeing a niininuini of five i u- 
dent seat* out of nine. 



And, on the board itself, stu- 
dents will hold 17 of the 21 
votes. 

What the students will help to 
govern will be one of the big- 
gest sections of campus life. 
Alan Christenson, a member of 
the now defunct advisory com- 
mittee, has said that the only 
single unit he could think of 
bigger than the Union is the 
Board Halls system. 

To Weld Community 

"There may be bigger opera- 
tions," Chri.stenson said, but he 
asserted the Union's primacy in 
the field of welding a tighter 
campus community. 

"We'll get everybody under one 
roof," he said. The commuters, 
he noted as an example, would 
have their on-campus base in the 
Union and would be integrated 
into the community instead of 
being an isolated splinter group. 

And every campus organiza- 
tion will have some connection 
with the SI', if only in that or- 
ganizational files will be main- 
tained in a special tile room 
there, while Recogni/.ed .Student 
Orgatiization ofTices will be lo- 
cated en the north side of the 
secojid door. 

Further, eight moms in the 
building h.ive been ^necially set 
aside for club meetings. 

The Union's two-story high 
main brillroom and its one-story 
.secondary dance room will also

Debate Opens 

Event-Packed 
Week Tuesday 

A busy week looms ahead. 

From Tuesday through 
Sunday major university 
productions will be calling 
for student attention as the 

end of the first round of exam- 
inations approaches. 

On Tuesday night the Young 
Democrats and Youth for Eisen- 
hower will clash gears in Bow- 
ker with a debate on the '56 
election. 

The next day centralized vot- 
ing booths will be installed in 
Mem Hall, the Commons and Ba- 
ker House to poll the campus 
on its favorite for president. 

The same night, Wednesday at 
8, poet Robert Frost will read 
from his work in Bowker. 

Lily Pons On Thursday 

On Thursday coloratura Lily 
Pons swings into the Field House 
at 8 p.m. for the Concert Asso- 
ciation's initial presentation of 
the year. 

Miss Pons will sing in a Field 
House filled with flowers, for the 
building will be decorated for the 
annual Horticulture Show. 

That takes over on Friday and 
will bring the hectic week to its 
close on Sunday. 

Miss Pons will not be the only 
singer to appear in Curry Hicks 
next week, since the theme of 
the Hort Show is "Music in the 
Park," and each day students 
from the music department will 
present a concert from the show's 
Victorian bandstand. 

One Singing Lily 

But on Wednesday night Miss 
Pons will be the only singer. As 
a campus sage has put it, "there 
may be many lilies in the Field 
House Wednesday, but only one 
will sing." 

The show, featuring a variety 
of flower exhibits, each year at- 
tracts scores of thousands of 
visitors. Admission is free. 

Frost's reading is sponsored 
by the Student Union under 
funds provided for lectures 
which, once the Union is done, 
will bo given under both Union 
roof and Union name. 

Townies Frost-Happy 

Seating in Bowker is on a 
first-come first-seated basis, with 
the .administration planning an 
arrangement to widen chances 
for stuilents obtaininir sents be- 
fore Frost-happy townies can 
get tliem, a common experience 
at other Frost readings. 

The talk will be aired by 
WMUA and begins at 8 p.m. 

The mock eb-ction spon.sored 
by the T'ebatintv So(iety will be 
open to all -students. Hill resi- 
dents will Vote in Haker, wom- 
en's dorm and Thatclu i and I^ew-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1956 



El}2 imai!sarl)uflptta fflnllrgtan 
The November Flurry 

Well known to most academicians is the 
"November Flurry." The November flurry 
is the heightened and aroused metabolism of 
a college campus during its time of most ac- 
tivity. In the early stages of the first se- 
mester, students are desperately trying to 
orient themselves in new courses and try- 
ing equally hard to assess their instructors. 
By the time Christmas vacation rolls around, 
these same students have succeeded for the 
most part and are beginning to be tired of 
the process. 

This flurry of activity rushes over into 
extra-curricular affairs, also, with the result 
that the calendar of events becomes satur- 
ated with happenings which draw the stu- 
dent away from his studies. 

The university is no exception to the rule, 
boasting a coming week's schedule that is 
enough to strike awe. 

The poet Robert Frost will make his an- 
nual visit here on October 31, the same 
day that the Mock Elections are to be held. 
Immediately following these events is the 
visit to our stage by Lily Pons. If this is 
not enough for you, the Horticulture Show 
will follow closely; presented on November 
2, 3 and 4. 

Homework is threatened. Instructors in 
every field are fighting back with assigned 
outside reading and announced hour exams. 

The Collegian predicts that it will be no 
use. Entei-tainment will win the day. 



An Announcement 

Because of the lack of Identification 
Cards, the Athletic Ticket will be used for 
admission to the first conceit of the 1956- 
1957 series. 

No one will be allowed to enter without 
an athletic ticket, a concert series ticket, or 
a single admission ticket. The single admis- 
sion ticket may be purchased at the door. 

The first concert of the series, November 
1, will be given by the world famous soprano, 
Lily Pons. Her progi'am promises to be 
varied and interesting. 

Scenery for Miss Pons' performance will 
be the main setting of the Horticultural 
Show for 1956. 



Collegian Training 

How would you like to begin work on the 
greatest college newspaper in the country? 

Professional training will be offered to 
all who wish to join the staff of the Collegian. 
The training program is under the co-direc- 
torship of Mr. Savage, English Department, 
and Lorraine Willson, executive editor of 
the Collegian. Mr. Richard Savage is the 
newsi>aper's advisor. 

Candidates who complete the program 
w,i\\ be given their choice as to positions on 
the news, sports, or editorial staffs. 

When the Collegian entered its thrice- 
weekly phase of expansion, it opened an un- 
precedented number of openings on its staff 
to qualified personnel. 

If you suspect that printer's ink has been 
coursing through your veins instead of blood 
for the last scoi-e of years, we suggest you 
relievo the pressure by training for the staflf. 
See any member today.

Letters To The 
Editor: 



The Errant Editorialist 

(Try as he might to avoid the whole bloody mess, your Errant 
Editorialist has found himself for the past few weeks immersed in 
a veritable morass of chatter on topics political. The current news- 
journals have literally been covered with presidential campaign news, 
and in the C-Store one continually hears the patrons gagging on 
their coffee at the mention of such terms as "Adlai," "Ike," and so 
forth. Upon investigating further into the causes of all the ferment, 
your Errant Editorialist found that some of the questions involved 
were rather Intriguing; intriguing to such an extent, that, taking ad- 
vantage of the anonymity of the voting process, he compromised with 
his better judgment, reconciled his finer sensibilities with the demo- 
cratic process, and cast a ballot. The following are some of his per- 
spicacious views on the current political fracas.) 

As concerns the two major contending major parties, this observ- 
er feels that the two camps are divided along economic lines i.e., the 
"Haves," and the "Have-Nots," being the Republicans and the Demo- 
crats respectively. 

The question of whether to be a Republican or a Democrat then, 
resolves itself into a question of good taste and basic honesty. Consider 
if you will, the advantages which accrue to the man who i- nown to 
be a Republican: immediately he is thought to be a man ..ho votes 
to protect his business and money interests; he is then accortled def- 
erence by the servile ranks of society by virtue of the lowly's awe of, 
and interest in, materiality. And he is envisage<l by his observers to 
be a man of discrimination, a man living in a world of stocks and 
bonds, wrajjped in expensive tweeds and bathed in imported scotch. 

Conversely, to the popular mind the word "Democrat" reeks of 
foul connotations: cold water flats, one's forbear's coming over dur- 
ing the potato famine, an-l ?n fonh. It is really to one's best inter- 
ests to be THOUGHT a Kci.ul.lic;ui. 

As concerns the question of basic honesty, consider the foul hy- 
pocrisy involvi-d in the episode of Stevenson's disclosure of a worn 
shoe sole in his last campaign, which is now being utilized by party 
supporters as a badge of his basic sympathy with the lov cr classes. 
This observer went to the trouble of having an enlargement made of 
the newsphoto which reveixled that the socks he wore beneath were 
of fine cashmere (with a worn, but still distinct Brooks Brothers 
label), of a weave and weight that proclaimed their purchase price to 
be no less than five dollars! (He has now, we believe, taken to wear- 
ing Thorn McCann socks exclusively, to prevent any further em- 
barrassment.)

To the Editor: 

When significant items in a public state- 
ment are deleted by the press, it smacks of 
either deliberate censorship or deplorable 
lack of editorial judgment. Furthermore, 
when the press fails to acknowledge erroi-s 
for which it is responsible, one wonders how 
low it will stoop to protect editorial prestige. 

In my letter last Friday, I included a 
statement which placed squarely upon the 
Collegian the responsibility for misspellings 
in an earlier letter of mine; unfortunately, 
those misspellings occurred in phrases I had 
quoted from another correspondent, Mr. 
Philip Schine. The editor, however, saw fit 
not to print that statement, and apparently 
felt no obligation either to acknowledge or 
to correct the Collegian's mistakes, of which 
there were others in the same letter. 

When I called this matter to the editor's 
attention, I was told that the Collegian re- 
serves the right to edit letters from its read- 
ers. That is a legitimate right, but it carries 
with it a weighty obligation to exercise pru- 
dence. If this obligation proves a burden to 
the editor, it shows not that the obligation 
is too great, but rather that the editor is 
not capable of bearing it. 

Other portions of my letter last Friday 
were also omitted, but I realize that their 
relative significance might well be argued. 
1 protest, however, the deletion of an appro- 
priate criticism of the Collegion. 

If this was a case of censorship to pro- 
tect the integrity of the Collegian, let the 
editor defend such a i>olicy; if, however, it 
was a case of poor judgment, may we hope 
that hereafter the editors will condescend 
occasionally to acknowledge and correct their 
mistakes? In any case, will they print this 
letter, unaltered? 

George C. Putnam 

Ed. note — Mr. Putnam asfsumes tliat 
lack of aeknowledgment (printed) of error 
was an attempt to protect editorial prestige. 
It was not. This motive iras nonexistent on 
our part and we hope that the printing of 
this letter in unaltered form will absolve us 
of anij such intent ion.

UMASS UPSETS N.U. 12-6 FOR INITIAL VICTORY 

Late Husky Drive Halted 
After Mellens 8 5 Yd Run 



by TED RAYMOND 

Led by two good horses named Charlie, the Redmen wagon was hauled out of the 
ditch of defeat back on to the well paved road of victory Saturday afternoon at Alum- 
ni Field as the Umies skinned the carcass of the Northeastern Huskie 12-6. 

The initial win of the current campaign was witnessed by a disappointingly small 
crowd of 3500 partisans. 

The first Charlie is a racing thoroughbred known as Choo-Choo, and once again he 
proved that he can gallop with the best as he took off like Nashua in a six furlong sprint 
to race 85 yards for the winning TD. He also figured in the first UMass tally as he 
pitched a running pass to Dick Wright from the Huskie ten yard stripe for the initial 
marker of the tilt. ~ 

The second Charlie is a workhorse who was himself 
once a seasoned sprinter running under the name of the 
Chucker. Saturday he proved conclusively that plugging 
away oblivious to the taunts and wails of fickle fans will 
eventually produce results. Buffeted around all season by 
the heavy waves of injury and the troughs of slim depth, 
when he was finally able to field a healthy team they virtu- 
ally exploded with a four megaton force, two of which were 
nullified. 



The Redmen gave an i-ndication 
of things to come early in the 
first period as they marched 80 
yards down the field. The drive 
was climaxed by John Cieri's 
dash from the ten to paydirt, bui 
the score was nullified on a pen- 
alty. The Redmen then lost the 
ball on downs and the fired up 
Huskies pushed it out of their 
own zone in five plays. 

In the second period, the Red- 
men again lugged the pigskin 
right up to Northeastem's front 
door in a 75 yard push up the 
gridiron only to be stymied by a 
combination of the clock, the of- 
ficials, and a dogged Huskie line. 
The time ran out with the Red- 
men on the Huskie 2-foot line 
amidst an aura of general con- 
fusion involving both teams and 
the referee. The Northeastern 
tally was engineered by sub quar- 
terback Dick Conley who passed 
the hungry Huskies down the field 
to paydirt late in the second peri- 
od. Conley snuck over for the 
score from the UMass one yard 
stripe. 

The Huskies controlled the ball 
almost exclusively during tVe 
second half as they toted the ball 
all over the field like a drunken 
diesel in a switchyard, but every 
time they threatened, the Red- 
men put on the red light and 
pushed them back. 

The Redmen jolted the Huskies 
with what proved to be the mar- 
gin of victory in the Fourth 
stanza when Mellen, playing deep 
safety for UMass, took in a punt 
on his own 15, eluded two on- 
rushing Huskies, sprinted for 
the sideline picking up blockers, 
and aided by a key block from 
Art Miller jomped all the way 
down the left side for the score. 

The fans were kept glued to

-roof-top ravings- 

The first appearance this year 
of Billy Goodwin was a pleasant 
surprise. The gutsy soph has 
been lost to the squad all season 
after breaking his leg in the first 
week of practice. 

It looks like Coach O'Rourke 
has produced another 60 minute 
stalwart in the person of Dyna- 
mite Danny Desmond, who, in 
his first appearance as a starter 
provided a solid plug in the 
tackle slot. 

Once again, Terrible Tinker 
Connolly was the wall of granite 
as ho spearheaded ihe UMass of- 
fense and bullwarked the defense. 

Co-Captains Jim Dolan and 
Dave Ingram showed their right 
to the titles as little Jim tore 
the larger Huskie line apart like 
a Wildcat with a burr on his tail, 
and Hurriiane Inch sent up 
stoiTn warnings all over the Hus- 
kie backfield as he milled around 
in their backfield putting beau- 
coup pressure on. 

Art Miller and John O'Keefe 
played their best games this year, 
with Miller throwing the key 
block in Mellen's 85 yard sprint, 
and O'Keefe wrecking havoc with 
Northeastem's outside running 
attempts.

Redmen Tie Bridgeport 2-2 
On Strength Of Daherty^s 
2 Goals; Last Home Tilt 

by BILL CROTTY 

On the strength of two goals by Ben Daherty, the UMass soccer 
team came back strong to tie the University of Bridgeport 2-2 at 
Alumni Field last Friday. 

With Web Cutting doing his part to keep the ball out of the home 
territory, the offense settled down in the visitor's territory for the 

most part o the first quarter.

During the second quarter, 
Bridgeport evened off on offense, 
and at the end of the period, 
they scored the first goal of the 
game — a shot from midfield. 

The Redmen continued to play 
the role of the unwanted orphan 
of Lady Luck, as they ruined 
many golden opportunities to 
score — often by inches. Early in 
the half, Billy Burke caught up 
with a ball lying at the mouth 
of the goal. Before he could 
score, the opposing fullback 
picked up the ball, Burke's en- 
suing penalty kick was blocked. 

At the start of the second half, 
the visitors scored again giving 
them a 2-0 lead. 

In the last twenty-two min- 
utes, Daherty, who has been su- 
perb in replacing Lou McCarry, 
put UMass back in the game 
with a well-placed shot into the 
nets. 

Daherty came back within ten 
minutes to score the final and 
tying goal of the game. Again 
displaying accuracy, he lifted the 
ball into the' top part of the nets 
— off the goalie's finger tips. 

This was the UM's soventh 
ga.iie of the season and the first 
single game in any week. With 
the hardest part of the season 
past, the Redmen have but Clark 
and Tufts remaining. On No- 
vember 3, the teams journey to 
Worcester and on the 9th to 
Medford. 

This was the last home game 
of the year for the Briggsmen,

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY, OCTOBER 29, 1956 



Collegian Board OKays PanHel Coffee Leader Claims 
Pay-For-Editors Plan Prosh Move Eager To Pledge 



The Collegian Publishing Board instituted Friday a 
salary paj-ment system for the paper's 10 editors, the busi- 
ness manager and the art editor. 

Approved by the board, the paper's ultimate governor, 
was a plan which awards each paid position holder from 
100 to 60 "shares" in the $800 fund set aside for such pay- 
ment. 



Salaries per semester will 
range from a high of $85 
for the executive editor, 

Miss Lorraine Willson, to $51 
for the art editor, Daniel Foley. 
The Publishing Board's sub- 
committee recommended the 
scale for these reasons: 

1) Professional organizations, 
for instance the university news 
office, local papers, and the ex- 
tension service, were hiring Col- 
legian editors, thus depriving the 
paper of the services of its most 
skilled people. 

2) The Collegiun demands so 
much time of its editors, the sub- 
committee's report claimed, that 
editors were unable to work as 
long as they needed to earn 
enough money for expenses. The 
salary system would pay the edi- 
tors enough money so they could 
reduce the number of hours they 
would have to work elsewhere. 

3) The committee agreed that 
the now abandoned scholarship 
plan led to charges of favoritism 
in the allocation of grants to two 
or three staffers, while salaries 
would provide a fixed and non- 
discriminatory payment. 

Professor Arthur Musgrave, 
who in 1951 backed the inaugur- 
ation of the scholarship system 
for editors, opposed the plan vig-

lar attention. 

The main ballroom, for in- 
stance, while not large enough 
for all-university convocations 
and Concert Association produc- 
tions, will supplant Bowker as 
the site of most large meetings. 
The main ballroom will be 
equipped with 1500 padded back, 
padded seat chairs. 

And the smaller ballroom, 
which in a pinch could be com- 
bined with its bigger sister to 
make a 1000-couple ballroom, 
can be used for smaller meetings, 
art exhibits, and the Friday 
night dances now held in Drill 
Hall.

salary plan. Musgrave is a for-

Under the plan, each share has 
been made worth 85 cents for the 
semester. The executive editor's 
job has been weighted at 100 
shares or $85; the business man- 
ager, Jerome Lefkowitz, 90 or 
86.50; the managing and editor- 
ial editors, three of each, 80 each 
or $68; the three sports editors, 
70 each or $59,50; and the art 
editor, 60 or $51. 

Payment will come from sur- 
plus Collegimi funds and from 
a budgetary allowance approved 
last spring by the Senate.

The chairman of the Panhe!- 
lenic annual coffee said last night 
that yesterday's gathering drew 
a bigger and more enthusiastic 
crowd than a year ago. 

Miss Nancy Colbert said she 
did not feel that the discrimina- 
tion issues which have been pre- 
sented on campus have reduced 
the enthusiasm of the freshman 
class for sororities. 

Several freshmen said after the 
tea they were unaffected by the 
discrimination issues, for, they 
said, they felt that sororities here 
did not practice bias. 

Some rtudents said they antici- 
pated in their high school days 
that sorority girls would be snob- 
bish but since arrival on campus 
they have changed their ideas. 
They said they noticed that so- 
rority members are not different 
from independents. 

The first part of the coffee in 
the Commons was held in small 
groups with the sorority members 
circulating among the freshmen. 



The sorority menvbers tried to 
meet as many freshmen as pos- 
sible to answer any questions. 

The sorority houses combined 
efforts in the entertainment by 
presenting a group of songs 
which brought out different as- 
pects of sorority life, such as 
service, scholarship, and coopera- 
tion. 

Miss Colbert reviewed the 
ixishing iTiles and urged the 
freshmen to go to the Round 
Robins, Sunday, Nov. 18, from 



1-5 and 6-9:30 p.m. 

She also urged freshmen to 
sign up for registration so that 
PanHel might get an idea of how 
many to expect to turn out for 
rushing. Registration is slated 
for Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 
6-7 p.m. in the dorms. Commuters 
may register in any dorm, but 
preferably Crabtree. 

After the entertainment the 
informal talking continued until 
5 p.m.

Tenor Jan Peerce 
Substitutes For Lily 



Singer Lily Pons has been forced to cancel her sched- 
uled concert appearance here Thursday night due to a se- 
vere cold, Robert Ames, manager of the Concert Associa- 
tion, announced last night. Tenor Jan Peerce of Bluebird 
of Happiness fame will substitute for the ailing Miss Pons 
in the Association's first presentation of the current season.

at both the Metropolitan and SaTi 

Francisco opera houses. 

In 1946 he was voted the fav- 
orite male singer in the country 
in a nation-wide poll of radio 
critics. 

The singer is married and the 
father of three children.

tion was received by the Concert 
Association at 4 p.m. yesterday. 
Arrangements for Peerce's ap- 
pearance were completed last 
night. 

Due to the substitution, the 
concert series for the 1956-57 
season has been increased from 
four to five performances. Miss 
Pons will appear at the Univer- 
sity in March 1957. 

Jan Peerce was born in New 
York City where he studied vio-

tras to pay for his college ex- 
penses. 

He made his professional de- 
but on the concert stage in 1938 
with the National Broadcasting

saws and the smell of fresh paint 
and evergreens dominate the 
scene in the cage as students

YD Club Will 
Go To Hear 
/. Kennedy 

UMass Young Democrats will 
form a motorcade Friday night 
from Amherst to Northampton to 
honor John F. Kennedy. 

Senator Kennedy will speak at 
a Democratic rally there. 

Chairman of the Democrats, 
Helen O'Leary, stated last night 
that other YD groups from Am- 
herst College, Smith, and Mount 
Holyoke also plan to attend. 

She added that Kemiedy will 
spend the next ten days in the 
state campaigning for Stevenson. 
She stated that the YD's had 
tried to engage Kennedy for a 
speech here. However, she said, 
his tight schedule would not per- 
mit him to come. 



Domestic, Foreign Issues 
Discussed By Students 

Six students matched wits in Skinner Aud. last night 
to try to prove or disprove the resolution that the Republi- 
cans should be returned to office in November. 

In the debate, which lasted an hour and a half, three 
Young Democrats and three Youth for Eisenhower pre- 
sented the issues and policies of both parties involved in 

the present campaign. 

The moderator, Jay Savereid 
of the speech department, opened 
the debate with a welcome to the 
audience of over a hundred peo- 
ple. He then introduced the first 
speaker Robert Brown, who spoke 
for the Republicans on domestic 
policies. 

Brown spoke of the Republi- 
cans' "incomparable administra- 
tion" which has produced a pic- 
ture of national contentment. He 
pointed out advancements made 



New Policy Announced; Courses 
Dropped After 3 Weeks Not Failed 



Cx^urses can now be dropped 
after three weeks of classes with- 
out failure, it was annocnced 
yesterday by the Registrar's Of- 
fice. 

Marshall O. Lanphear, regis- 
trar, stated that at a meeting of 
the Educational Policy Council 
Monday, action was taken to 
change the present policy. At 
present any course dropped after 
three weeks of classes is con- 
sidered a failure. 

The new policy states that a 
course may be dropped with 
a grade WP (withdrew passing) 
any time after the three weeks 
period with the adviser's approv- 
al. 



The adviser must complete two 
program change cards which, 
along with a statement from the 
instructor certifying that the stu- 
dent is passing, must be sub- 
mitted to the Registrar's ofl^ce. 
The VVP is indicated on the stu- 
dent's permanent record card but 
is not computed in the quality 
point average. 

A course dropped after the 
three weeks |>eriod will be re- 
corded as \VF (withdrew fail- 
ing) if the student can not sub- 
mit a statement from his instruc- 
tor certifying that he is passing 
the course on this date. The grade 
WF will be computed in the qual- 



ity point average and will be 
recorjded on the student perman- 
ent record card. 

The normal time for dropping 
a course will be established and 
recorded on the oflicial University 
Calendar by the selection of the 
nearust practicable date which 
will allow three weeks fronv the 
first scheduled day of classes of 
each .stnuster. In such a case the 
course will not appear on the 
student's peiTnanent record card. 

No new course can be added 
to a student's program after ten 
calendar days from the first 
scheduled day of classes of each 
semester. 



Bourne Retires

by the Eisenhower administra- 
tion which benefit both farmers 
and labor. He added that "jobs 
were never so plentiful" and "liv- 
ing standards never so high" as 
they are now. 

Democrats' Retort 
Presenting the Democrats* an- 
swer to Republican claims in do- 
mestic issues was Philip Shine. 
He pointed out that the country 
is not so prosperous as the Re- 
publicans would have the people 
believe. He said the country's 
prosperity is like a "lob-sided 
balloon" since most of the pros- 
perity goes to big business. He 
added that this balloon can be 
easily deflated when "pricked by 
the cold facts of reality." 

Following Shine, Craig Preston 
spoke for the Republicans on 
foreign policy. He mentioned that 
Eisenhower brought peace to the 
country and fulfilled his cam- 
paign promise by ending the war 
in Korea in 1952. He added that 
the U.S. brought West Germany 
into NATO. 

Joseph McParland then pre- 
sented the Democratic attitude 
on foreign policy. In answer to 
Preston, he stated that the war 
in Korea could have been ended 
by Tim man, but that Truman 
wanted something to show for 
all the lives lost. He added that 
nothing was gained by the terms 
accepted by Eisenhower. 
II. S. More Secure 
Miss Marilyn Swift then sum- 
merized the policies of the Re- 
publican party by presenting its 
philosophy. She stated that Ei- 
senhower was respected here and 
abroad. She added that the coun- 
try is much more secure now 
than during Truman's adminis- 
tration. Miss Swift .said that the 
i\epublirans do not stand for 
"big government", 

Summerizing for the Demo- 
crats wa.s Mis.s Janet Gorman. 
She praised past Democratic 
presidents, especially Franklin 
D. Roosevelt, as repre.sentative

She ronrlufied that thi:-; was not 
the party of the po,>i-, nf th,. la-

Highlighl.o Given 
At the oom-iusion of Miss Gor- 
man's speech, Preston presented 
the highlights of tho Republi-

olution. Shine then did the same 
for the T>emo<-rats,

ON LETTERS 

The Collegian policy in regard to "Let- 
ters to the Editor" appeared in these pages 
a few weeks ago. There is no need for rep- 
etition of it now, but it seems necessary to 
clarify the position of the editor somewhat. 

Some letters which we receive never see 
print. This is not because the editors are 
biased or selective in what they print. It is 
due to the lack of space on the pages. 

A few letters arrive here too late to be 
included in the next day's paper. These let- 
ters are usually held over for the following 
issue. 

Many of the comments which are sent 
to us are too lengthy to be printed as they 
are. If it is possible to edit the letter by 
omitting insignificant parts without losing 
the main theme of the letter, this is done. 
This is why many letter writers find their 
material condensed from the original text 
upon publication. 

Some others are simply too long for the 
editor to shorten without omitting pertinent 
points. In these cases, the letters must be 
re-written by the author or excluded. 

May we ask our correspondents to con- 
tinue sending letters, but may we also re- 
<iuest that they be "short, sweet, and to the 
point." If this is done, there is more room 
for other letters to see print.

The Land Of JAZZ 

(Fourth in a series of articles) 
THE FABULOUS BIRD: 

When modern jazz burst into the open in the early 
1940's, it was sorely in need of a form that would allow 
for the freedom of more complex musical ideas. Born of in- 
tellectual curiosity, revolt and frustration, the forefathers 
of what at that time was called (for lack of a better name) 
"bebop," realized that jazz was destined to become wide 
and varied in scope. Tired of hearing their bi*and of music 
this small group collected at a night club in New York's 
called "primitive," "stereotyped," and "musically illiterate," 
Harlem called Minttm's. From these gatherings evolved 
an aspect of music never before dreamed of — ^the neophyte, 
modern jazz. 



MAIL BAG 

FOR STEVENSON 

To the Editor: 

In his letter in Wednesday's Collegian Mr. Garey 
refers to "Students who can not afford a local news- 
paper or do not have their noses out of books long 
enough to read a newspaper longer than four pages." 
I don't know which group he belongs to, but his 
approach to Mr. Stevenson's proposals shows either 
ignorance, or perhaps a careless disregard for the 
dangers in our increasingly "perfected" tools of 
self-destruction. Instead of analyzing Mr. Steven- 
son's proposals and criticising possible weaknesses, 
Mr. Garey distorts and ridicules them. 

In the first place, Mr. Stevenson is too intelli- 
gent a man and too experienced a statesman to 
claim the ability "to abolish the threat of another 
world war." That, if anything, sounds like an over 
simplification of the "Ike peace, prosperity" type. 

Mr. Garey then expects our weapons to become 
obsolete and therefore humorously suggests selling 
them and rearming with B-B guns. 

Well, regardless of what real solution to world 
conflicts "ibetter" bombs are, Mr, Stevenson has not 
suggested a halt in all phases of their development. 
He has only suggested a halt in the last and most 
dangerous phase — the final testing; the phase which 
is also costing us our prestige as a peace-loving na- 
tion. Last week Mr. Stevenson said "We should 
prepare ourselves (by continuous research) so that 
if another country, as I have said, violated the agree- 
ment, we could promptly resume our testing pro- 
gram," (N.Y, Times, October 21, 1956,) And, as 
many atomic physicists have agreed, since Russian 
testing would be immediately detected here, we 
could resume our tests with little delay. 

Since Governor Stevenson's sincere and well 
thought out proposals are safe, practical, and, if 
Bulganin is sincere, more applicable than the "open 
skies plan" — they deserve more consideration than 
Mr, Garey's imaginative but uninformed letter would 
give them, 

James R, Watson 



In his book, Inside Bebop, the 
critc Leonard Feather describes 
the genesis of modern jazz in 
this manner: "No one musician 
did it. Dizzy Gillespie did not 
create bebop in Philadelphia any 
more than Charlie Parker created 
it in Kansas City or Charlie 
('hristian in Oklahoma or Lester 
Young on the road with Count 
Basic. What is known today as 
bebop is a synthesis of many 
ideas, the product of many orig- 
inal musical minds," 

Thus did jazz come alive with 
new ideas, techniques, form and 
structure, and, most important 
in modem jazz , . . the pursuit 
of creative experimentation. 

Charlie "Bird" Parker was 
bom in Kansas City in April, 
1920. He died in New York in 
March, 1955 at the age of thirty- 
four, a tragic victim of many 
diseases, among them poverty, 
racial diacriminaton, and artistic 
frustration. 

The Bird began his musical ca- 
reer in the city of his birth, 
where he played the baritone 
horn in high school. He soon 
found, however, greater satisfac- 
tion in the in.strument with 



which he became synonymous — 
the alto saxaphone. 

He played for awhile with lo- 
cal groups until he joined the 
Jay McShann swing orchestra in 
1937. Recording and traveling 
with McShann, it was in 1942 
that Charlie decided to make 
New York his headquarters. At 
Minton's, in Harlem, he soon be- 
came a part of the avant-garde 
.sot and worked with a small 
band at another night spot known 
as Monroe's Uptown House. 

In 1944, along with the other 
modem jazzmen. Bird moved 
down to 42nd Street where he 
worked with Ben Webster, Diz- 
zy Gillespie, and later a crew 
of his own. The year 1945 saw 
him move to California ^v^th 
Gillespie, and it was here that 
he became too ill to work. 

However, he was active again 
in 1948, playinK with a fresher 
and brighter style and turning 
nut records that were master- 
pieces, Kvon thnu^h plapued with 
illness and poverty, Bird played 
his daring and scintillating mus- 
ic until he died,

NO BERMUDAS? 

To the Editor: 

It is wTitten "Clothes don't make the man," May- 
be they don't, but they sure do help. There are times 
when men and women are expected to wear appro- 
priate clothes. 

Most of us have already receivefl enough train- 
ing and education to know what this means. It is 
my opinion, that we should not only dress properly 
but according to our goal, 

I realize that most of us can't afford fancy 
"duds," Just get out of those bermuda shorts and 
change into the right kind of clothes for class. 

I don't think this is neces.sary so much for those 
who work in the field, as the engineering and agri- 
cultural students. But it should be a must for the 
business .students. For others, I say, decide for 
yourselves. 

Let's look at it another way. Visitors come to 
UMass every day. Often they see us only as we look, 
not as we are. 

If nothing else, let's get those blouse pins out, 
girls, excuse me, ladies. Let's take the ties off the 
racks, gentlemen. 

The folks back home will be proud of you more 
than ever, and that's for sure. 

Now let the visitors arrive. When we stick our 
chests out now, we'll have a good reason to. How 
else will they see our pins and ties!

MURAL MIRROR 

Injury Problem Becomes 
Serious In Mural Football 

by STEVE SANFIELD 

It's been going on ever since the intramural season began, and 
it's about time something was said ^bout it. I am referring to the 
scores of injuries resulting from intramural football. 

Crutches and casts are a common sight all over campus. Some 
of these injuries have been the result of nothing more than hard play, 
but all too many of them come from "dirty football." 

Sure, everyone likes to win, but victory can come from clean 
football, too. So, how about it? Let's stop acting like animals and 
start playing the game the way it was meant to be play^ — ^hard 
but clean.

TEP Topples 
Unbeaten In 



SAE 26-20; 
Nine Starts 



by JON COWEN 

TEP continued to dominate the 
Fraternity League Monday night, 
as they rolled over SAE 26-20 
in what may have been the de- 
ciding contest in the race for the 
fraternity crown. 



win for TEP, now undefeated in 
nine starts. 



Scoring: 



A large crowd turned out to 
watch SAE, the pre-season fav- 
orites, attempt to stop the boys 
from North Pleasant and their 
smooth passing quarterback, 
Skippy Elman. 

SAE jumped into the lead on 
the first set of downs as a Scalzl 
to MaCafferty aerial clicked. Ma- 
Cafferty then carried on an end 
run for the SAE point after. 

TEP wasted no time getting 
back into the game. Elman was 
stopped on two successive plays 
before getting off one of his pat- 
ented passes. As usual, the TEP 
oflFense had a man in the open. 
Leon Aaronson snagged the ball 
and the Teppers had their first 
TD. The point was good. 

Both teams then settled down 
to a battle of the quarterbjicks. 
Both teams again managed to 
score. The first half ended with 
a 14-14 deadlock. 

TEP broke the game wide open 
in the third quarter. Maxie Rein- 
stein and Skippy Elman carried 
the pi^'skin for two quick scores. 
This left the men from Sunset 
Ave. on the abort end of a 26-14 
score. 

SAE fought back with a strong 
ground attack. They managed to 
score on a run by Billy Mahoney, 
but the clock caught up to them, 
still in possession of the ball. The 
final I'll IT of 26-20 marked the 
first defeat for SAE, and another

Aggies Lose 
To NHP 13-6 

Listless play in the second pe- 
riod spelled defeat for the Aggies 
as they were edged out by New 
Hampton Prep 13-6 Saturday at 
the New Hampshire school. 

On the first play from scrim- 
mage in the contest, Frank 01- 
brych took a handoff from John 
Holmes and raced 55 yards to 
paydirt. In the second stanza, 
New Hampton went on the move. 
They marched the ball down the 
field with authority and finally 
scored. Their conversion try was 
good and at intermission they 
led the Aggies 7-6. 

Stockbridge dominated the play 
during the entire second half 
but were unable to push the pig- 
skin over the goal line. Every 
time they got within scoring 
range they were pushed back by 
penalties. As Coach Kosakowski 
commented, "We had so many 
penalties it's a wonder that the

Barous Earns WW Award 
For Defensive Play Vs NU 

The Redmen finally broke into the win column Satur- 
day, and the thrilling tilt also produced another Wellworth 
Award winner to enter the chosen ranks. 

Roger Barous is the top brave in the wigwam by virtue 
of his solid performance against the Northeastern Huskies. 

Rog is the Redmen's hatchetman on defense. He really 
makes use of the shoulder pads, and after watching some of 
his bone- jarring tackles you might speculate as to how many 
pair he weal's out each season. 

He doesn't wear war paint, but after a few minutes 
of play, most opponents know him as heap-bitter medicine 
man. 

Rog twitches his shoulder instead of shaking an amu- 
let, but the effect is the same — respect. 

Some ball carriers must wonder if he wasn't riding his 
trusty pinto when he hit them. He smiles at them when 
they get up, but they must be thinking of the emblem on an 
iodine bottle. 

Barous is no slouch on offense either as he wheels into 
the line like a Sherman tenk and takes off like a souped-up 
jeep in a minefield when he reaches the secondary. 

We understand that Coach O'Rourke is storing up 
Kleenex to wipe away the tears at graduation when Rog 
departs leaving a large size pair of brogans to fill. 

The key play in the UMass last minute goal line stand 
was provided by Rog when, on a Huskie end sweep from 
the Redman five, he faked out two blockers like Mandrake 
at his best, hit the runner with a head and shoulder block 
that threw the poor Huskie into a forward flip, and wound 
up on top of the ball carrier with a toe-hold that Nanjo 
Singh would have marveled at. 

Roger carries out his blocking assignments with the 
thoroughness of a communist purge. He clears the way on 
end sweeps like a razor through a freshman's beard. 

For his eflforts, he will receive the gift certificate from 
the friendly pharmacy that entitles him to several geetas 
worth of goodies.

Nixon Won Friends 
One question directed to the 
Republicans was, "Does Nixon 
command respect in foreign 
countries?" Miss Swift answered 
by quoting a statement by Billy 
Graham in which he said that 
while visiting India, Nixon won 
many friends for the UJ3L 

The next question was direet«d 
to McParland concerning Steven- 
son's policy on the draft. Before 
answering, McParland paused 
for a moment to state that, "Nix- 
on should go to church on Sun- 
day and thank God he left In- 
dia alive."

The Parker style is uncom- 
promising, for he seldom made 
concessions to popular taste and 
demand. Unlike his colleague 
Gillespie, he was not an enter- 
tainer as well as a musician. It 
is therefore understandable that 
Bird did not fare well financially, 
and it was necessary for his 
many frienus in and out of the 
music profession to raise money 
to feed and clothe his wife and 
chaildren — even to pay for his 
burial. 

Part of his heritage may be

Ten hundred and ninety-four students gave President 
Eisenhower and Vice-President Nixon an overwhelming 
victory in Wednesday's campus-wide mock election. Only 
four hundred and thirty-nine ballots were cast for the op- 
position Democratic party. 

The election, under the sponsorship of the Debating 
Society, was preceded by weeks of campaigning by the 
Youth for Eisenhower and the Young Democrats. Both 
groups have been active in providing information about 
their respective party and organizing student interest in 
the workings and policies of the parties. 

Information compiled from the ballots showed that 165 
of the Republican voters were 21 years old or over. Of 
these, 165 were registered voters. One hundred and five 
of the Democratic voters were 21 or over, 85 of whom were 
registered. 

The t\vo student political groups plan to continue their 
efforts of raising interest in the forthcoming national elec- 
tion. 



1958 Deadline 
May Be Set 
To Fid Bias 

Senator Silvio Conto said yes- 
terday that the committee inves- 
tigating SK will "most likely 
recommend legislative action re- 
quiring the administration to 
take action ridding all University 
of Massachusetts social organiza- 
tions of discriminatory practices 
by the fall of 1958." 

The recommendation would re- 
quire the legislature to take ac- 
tion if the administration fails to 
do so by the date set. 

Conte read this statement fi-om 
the committee report which has 
been drawn up but is, as yet, un- 
signed by the committee mem- 
bers. 

President Mather had "no com- 
ment" to make as to what the 
university policy will be regard- 
ing this issue.

"You don't want to sit long 
enough to hear 'Birches' do you?" 
asked poet Holwrt Frost as the 
applause at tin- cjid of his read- 
ing brought him back. 

"Yes," an:nveied the audience. 

Before an overflowing crowd 
Frost gave a reading of his poe- 
try Wednesday night at Bow- 
ker Aud. Many were turned a- 
way at the door a half hour be- 
fore the program started. 

Frost is no stranger to Am- 
herst. He fiist came to teach at 
Amherst College in 1912. Since 
then he has been back many 
times. 

Short Talk Before IV'ins 

Frost gave a .small talk be- 
fore lio lui-an reading his 
pm-ms. "I always seem to have 
adventures that set me ofT talk-

He t()ld of a friend that once 
started a conversation with him

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 2, 1956 



Fatter Paychecks 

Authorizations covering "most of our 
employees," said yesterday's University Bul- 
letin, have been received from the Division 
of Personnel putting into effect the salary 
plan approved under Chapter 729 ("Barring- 
ton" Plan). 

The new salary plan which will raise the 
ratings and pay scales of university em- 
ployees from Dining Commons dishwashers 
up to the president, is the result of a study 
of state personnel by Barrington Associates, 
Inc. 

The re-evaluated scale, although still not 
what it should be, represents a constructive 
advance in recognizing the personnel needs 
of the university. However, in some cases 
the salary raise could not prevent an unfor- 
tunate and sad shake up in the university 
chain of command. 

Retroactive to October 1st, the raises will 
be evidenced in payroll checks to be distri- 
buted on Nov. 9. 

The Barrington raises in the same year 
as the Freedom Bill passage bring new hope 
to the university for the attaining of its 
rightful place in the state. 

Progress is evident but it is interesting to 
note that class three — junior clerks — also 
includes dishwashers and the two jobs re- 
ceive the same rate of pay. 



Jan Peerce Sings 

Distinguished American tenor Jan Peerce subbed 
for Lily Pons last night giving a performance that 
would have been hard to equal. 

As he came out on the stage, he announced that 
while he was not as pretty as Miss Pons, he would 
like more light — and he got it. 

Opening with Bach's "Only Be Still" from Can- 
tata 29, Peerce displayed his kno-w-ledge and under- 
standing of the Bach style. He has done many Bach 
recordings. 

Next came the "Vittoria, Mio Core" by Carissimi. 
This is a song in the heroic vein, but as Mr. Peerce 
sang it, one wondered whether he, his accompanist, 
or Carissimi were trying to catch a train. Rhythmic- 
ally fast, the work was utterly devoid of its inherent 
heroic stature. 

The group concluded with the great "Judas Mac- 
cabeaus" by Handel. This work also suffered from 
the rhythmic vagaries and accelerated tempi. 

It was in the songs of Faure and Foudran, 
"Apres un Reve" and 'Camiar' that Mr. Peerce gave 
us the true story of his considerable artistic abilities. 
His diction was impeccable and he seemed to feel 
and be able to communicate the beauties of both 
songs. He was less successful with "An Die Musik" 
by SchubTt and the same comiwser's "Ungeduld," 

Mr. Peerce sang one of his besft roles — ^the Tomb 
scene from "Lucia di Lammermoor" by Donizetti. 
Without recourse to gesture, he provided a poignant 
and compelling performance of this scene. 

Following intermission, his accompanist provided 
some good piano playing in "La Cathedral Eng- 
loutie" by Debussey and an "Impromptu in A flat 
major" by Schubert. 

Mr. Peerce concluded his program with arias 
from "Rigoletto" and "Tosca." 

He has had a long and honored career at the 
Metropolitan. He recently sang in Russia, the first 
of the Met tenors to do so. As an opera tenor, he 
has few peers although the voice has now acquired 
an almost baritone quality. 

He is a fine ma.sician and in his chosen sphere 
he is difiicult to equal. 

The university concert association is fortunate to 
have sucli an excellent substitute for Miss Pons. 
The extra concert in the series to be given in March 
by Lily Pon.s is a two-for-one arrangement and no 
one who attended last night's concert can feel 
cheat' (i 1 their tickets will admit them in March 
to hear Lily Pons.

The Mail Bag 

AEPi Retracts Ad-Invite 

To the Editor: 

I am writing this letter to retract an ad and 
correct a mistake. In Wednesday's edition of the Coir 
legian, AEPi ran an ad extending what could be 
taken as an open invitation to its "Saki Party" Sat- 
urday night. This would be a violation of Section 
6b of the Fraternity Code which states: 

No guest shall be admitted to a fraternity 
house except ut the invitation of a member 
who accepts full responsibility for the ob- 
servance of the Chapter House Rules. 
This would therefore render this ad invalid as 
an invitation. I would like to apologize for the ad, 
therefore, which was not, I realize, in good taste, 
and for the necessity of retracting it. 

I feel sure that the campus will understand.

APO,GOOD SCOUTS,HELPS 
UNIVERSITY AND TOWN 



by EVELYN COHEN 



Alpha Phi Omega pledges: ser- 
vice to the student body and 
faculty, service to youth and the 
community, service to members 
of the fraternity, and service to 
the nation as participating citi- 
zens. 

This group is comprised of 
members of former Boy Scouts 
of America who are interested in 
continuing their service through 
this national fraternity. APO 
now has over 258 chapters in col- 
leges and universities throughout 
the country. 

The requirements for member- 
ship are: 1. previous training in 
scouting, 2. desire to render serv- 
ice to othei-s, 3. satisfactory 
scholastic standing. 

Unique Organization 

APO is unique among campus 
organizations. The purpose of Al- 
pha Phi Omega is "to assemble 
college men in the fellowship of 
the Scout Oath and Law, to de- 
velop friendship and to promote 
service to humanity." Members 
of other campus fraternities may 
be active in this organization. 

Here on campus the students, 
unfortunately, take for granted 
and give no recognition to the 
trf?mendous amount of work and 
effort that the boys in Kappa 
Omnicron chapter perform. 

37 Members Soon 

At this time APO has 20 ac- 
tive members. Seventeen pledges 
will be initiated on December 10. 
These prospective members must 
complete 12 hours of service pri- 
or to their initiation. The boys 
form a close brotherhood — each 
has determined vigor and the 
honest desire to promote toward 
the welfare of all. 

One needs only to glance 
through their scrapbook to begin 
to appreciate their worth. There 
is an array of letters from such 
places as the Jones Library in 
ai>preciation for the volunteer 
labor which APO gave toward 
making the Youth Room of the 



Library possible, from the De- 
partment of Landscape Architec- 
ture on campus applauding them 
for helping to set up and clean 
up at the Horticulture Show, and 
from the Northampton State Hos- 
pital kindly thanking them for 
the magazines they collected and 
made available to the various 
wards and patients' library. These 
are but a few activities of which 
APO can boast. 

Many Services 

As only samples of their reg- 
ular duties are the running of 
the lost and found at football 
games, carrying torches for the 
band at the football rallies, 
supervising the Mt. Toby recre- 
ation facilities, taking active part 
in the Horticulture Show, chang- 
ing the material on the university 
bulletin boards, running an in- 
formation service on all big 
weekends, and being major par- 
ticipants in the organization and 
running of freshman week. 

Foremost now in their future 
plans are hopes to as successful- 
ly as in previous years sponsor 
the Ugly Man On Campus Con- 
test, of which the proceeds are 
given to some worthy organiza- 
tion, the Books For Asia Drive, 
and in the spring to exercise 
their ability in promoting an ex- 
tensive blood drive. 

Services Available 

The services of APO are avail- 
able to any who inform the boys 
previous to the Monday evening 
of the week they are needed, for 
it is a policy of APO that all 
service projects be voted on by 
the entire fraternity. However, 
even on last minute notices an 
attempt will be made to recruit 
the necessary boys. 

All the boys, save dormitory 
counsellors, live together in But- 
terfieid Donnitory. At their meet- 
ings with Mr. Alden Tuttle, pro- 
fessor of horticulture and chair- 
man of their advisory committee

Crotty Answers Cassandra 

Cassandra evidences a knowledge of her sopho- 
more English course, a fluent writing style and a 
flair for the dramatic. . . . 

She raises a pointed question though. Should we, 
students, have an interest in the campaign and the 
election? Possibly! 

No matter how trite the phrase, the truth re- 
mains we are the future leaders of our country. 
More than that, the franchise that some of us exe- 
cute now and the rest shall shortly, is the comer- 
stone of our democratic system. It is best we ma- 
ture politically, as well as socially and physically 
and be a:ble to understand and discuss the issues, 
the candidates and the alternative choices offered 
to us by our political parties. 

An evident lack of this imdersstanding is present 
in Cassandra's referring to Mr. Stevenson and Mr. 
Eisenhower as middle-of-the-roaders attempting to 
escape new and bo^ld moves. It is not quite that 
simple, Mr. Eisenhower meets and administers situ- 
ations as he sees fit. He has shown imagination in 
such schemes as his "atoms for peace" and "open 
skies" inspection proposals. 

Mr. Stevenson, on the other hand, has shown 
resourcefulness and deep, intelligent thinking in his 
conduction of the campaign, his unprecedented and 
sound suggestions for termination of H-Bomb ex- 
plosions, and decreasing the draft in favor of a 
smaller and better-equipped tactical army. 

Both men are "gifted" and experienced. Mr. 
Eisenhower is well-known as Allied Commander in 
Europe during the last war and Mr. Stevenson has 
been assistant to the Secretary of the Navy, special 
assistant to the Secretary of State, leader of the 
Economic Mission to Italy, alternate to the U.N. 
General Assembly, lawyer, and governor of Illinois. 
Certainly, they are somewhat qualified to lead our 
country. 

Rather than railing the off-hand attack on our 
democratic system asinine and ignorant, I would 
like to point out in the governing of people we are 
dealing with just that — people. Human beings are 
subject to vices, emotions, frailities and pressures. 
Our American system has tried to take this into 
account, balancing the liberty of these individuals 
with the order necessary for the conducting of the 
government's business in the bei?t interest of us all. 
I think we can be justifiably proud of the results. 
It is unnecessary to say that today we are a world 
l)ower, enjoying the highest standard of living ever 
attained, yet free and independent with the reins of 
power in our hands. 

To preserve this in face of ever threatening 
dangers it is necessary that we vote, take an active 
intore.st in the candidates and their policies, balanc- 
ing one against the other intelligently. To accom- 
pli.sh this we have the campaigns in which every- 
thing is placed squarely before us. 

Thus, Cassandra, you are unfortunate enough 
to be bored by some students on campus who, real- 
izing this, take an active interest in the affairs of 
our government and our leaders. 

Don't be di.'ihearter-Ml though. Even Plato in his 
later works was not the "ivory tower" philosopher 
he was in the Republic.

PEERLESS PREDICTIONS .... 

Raymond Rates Redmen 
To Top U.V.M. By Ten 

by TED RAYMOND 



The Redmen war drums are 
beating loud and confidently 
again as the hunting party led 
by Sachem O'Rourke prepares to 
journey to the shores of Lake 
Champlain for a battle with the 
Green Mountain Catamounts. 

Spirit is high at the UMass 
reservation as it appears that the 
Redmen will be able to field a 
•whole and healthy team for the 
second consecutive week. Until 
the Redmen took the scalp of the 
Northeastern Huskie last week, 
the original starting lineup had 
not appeared intact since the BU 
tilt. The return to action of all 
the assorted casualties must in- 
deed seem a good omen to the 
Crow Hill medicine man. 

From all reports on the Ver- 
mont outfit, the Redmen will need 
all their weapons in good shape 
for this contest. UMass will be 
throwing everything at the Cata- 
mounts as they seek their first 
YanCon victory of the campaign. 
The only change from last week 
in the starting eleven will be the 
return of Tommy Whalen to the 
starting quarterback post. Tom 
has seen only limited service for 
the last three games due to a 
pulled side ligament, but he ap- 



pears to be in good shape again 
and ready to roll. Billy Maxwell 
has been an able replacement for 
Tommy, and with a little more 
experience should blossom into 
one of the best ever to see action 
with the Redmen. 

Although the Catamounts have 
proved to be formidable opposi- 
tion for all the outfits they have 
faced this year, and even though 
they have trounced the R. I. 
Rams who in turn whipped the 
Redmen, this writer will stick 
with the Redmen again. The well 
disciplined, smartly functioning 
squad that performed last week 
should repeat against Vermont. 

So into this, the inaugural ap- 
pearance of Ray's Peerless Pre- 
dictions We inject the first sur- 
prise; UMass over Vermont by 
10 points. Other leading games 
will go thusly (if the crystal ball 
isn't clouded over): 

Conn- to roll over N.H. (14) 
BU to upset Holy Cross (7) 
Villanova over BC (8) 
Dartmouth to surprise Yale 

(3) 
Penn will stun Harvard (16) 
Brown too strong for Prince- 
ton (5) 



UM Harriers Seek Title 
In YanConference Meet 



by JOHN McATEER 



Co-Captains Lee Chisholm and 
Tom Flynn lead their Harrier 
squad to its toughest and most 
consequential assignment of the 
year tomorrow afternoon. 

The Yankee Conference Cross 
Country meet takes place at 
UConn in Storrs, Conn. The uni- 
versity hopes to see Coach Bill 
Footrick's boys assert themselves 
to their greatest challenge. 

Through the regulation season 
we have followed the University 
Hill and Dalers to an only aver- 
age three and two record. This 
certainly does not seem the kind 
of thing which might prompt us 
to hope for any post-season laur- 
els. However, w^e must keep in 
mind that cross country is es- 
sentially a post-season sport. Un- 
like any other athletic activity, 
an undefeated season may be- 
come worthless and a mediocre 
team may come to be rated first 
in New England on the respec- 
tive weakness or strength of this 
showing. 

For the Redmen the post-sea- 
son includes tomorrow's meet and 
next week's New Englands. The 
latter meet is certainly bigger 
but the Yankee Conference in- 



cludes the top three schools in 
N.E. 

Coaches don't push their +eams 
all season to make these playoffs 
because every school is entered. 
The idea is to use the regular 
season as a proving and train- 
ing ground to work a precise con- 
ditioning schedule. The result of 
a successful program along these 
lines is the attainment of peak 
form in each of the athletes. This 
idea of peak form is voiy excit- 
ing. It is different from being 
just in condition, in that it com- 
bines a precise time clement with 
the attainment of top i)hysical 
form. 

It is the strict adherence to 
this system and the addition of 
Schwarz that will enable the 
Redmen, feels Coach Footrick, to 
drop UConn tomori-ow.

Booters Seek Initial Win 
Against Clark Tomorrow 



The Massachusetts varsity soc- 
cer oquad will attempt to bring 
home a scalp tomorrow in an 
away game with Clark Univer- 
sity. The UMies have yet to cop 
a v/in in eight starts. They've 
been the consistant victims of the 
tie and the heart-breaker. 

The team, with the exception 
of Dick Golas and Lou McCarry 

Mt. Hermon Stops 
Little Redmen 
In Soggy Till 

A combination of rainy weath- 
er and a desertion by old Lady 
Luck spelled defeat for Coach 
Howne Burn's frosh soccer com- 
bine as they slipped and slid to 
a 5-1 loss over a smooth Mount 
Hermon squad. 

The fi-osh managed to hold 
their own in the first quarter. 
Mount Hermon scored first. Then 
Bill Harris tallied for the little 
Redmen to knot the count at 1-1. 

After this, it was all over for 
UMass. The mer. from North- 
field poured on the steam and 
pumped in two more tallies to 
set the score at 3-1 at the half. 

Two more goals in the second 
half of the tilt iced the contest 
for the prep school boys. 

Playing conditions for the con- 
test were slightly less than ideal. 
A light rain turned the field into 
the proverbial sea of mud. The 



who are still out with injuries 
suffered in the Amherst game, 
is in top physical shape. Ben 
Doherty has done a magnificent 
job subbing for McCarry at the 
left wing spot. Ben scored two 
goals ill the Bridgeport contest 
and has looked even sharper in 
practice. 

The UMies whomped Clark 
7-1 last year, but may be sur- 
prised by a much improved team. 
Clark can be compared to UMass 
only on the strength of their re- 
spective showings against 
Worcester Tech. CLark managed 
to eke out a 3-3 tie. UMass also 
managed a tie. 

This will be the next to last 
game for the varsity booters. 
UMass will face Tufts at Med- 
ford next Friday for the finale. 

Coach Briggs will have the 
boys primed for tomorrow's con- 
test in hopes that the thus far 
victimized booters will finally 
crash the win column. 

latter part of the game was 
played in semi-darkness as the 
lights on Alumni Field provide 
a minimum of light in the area 
of the frosh soccer field. 

Aside from weather conditions, 
the little Redmen just couldn't 
do anything right and the five 
Mt. Hermon goals could be loose- 
ly termed flukes. It was just a 
sad day all around for the frosh 
booters.

AMCOP Will Present 
Menotti Operas In Nov. 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2, 1956 



The melodious strains of grand 
opera will fill Bowker Aud on 
Nov. 16, 17, and 18 when the 
Amherst Community Opera pre- 
sents its annual production in the 
university auditorium, according 
to Mrs. Joseph Contino, presi- 
dent and musical director. 

This marks the first time that 
the Amherst gi'oup will appear 
on campus. Site of previous 
AMCOP presentations has been 
the Amherst Town Hall. 

AMCOP, a community venture, 
will present a double bill of 
operas by Gian Carlo Menotti. 
First will be the gay and sophis- 
ticated "Amelia Goes To The 
Ball," followed by the Christmas 
classic, "Amahl and the Night 
Visitors." 

AMCOP Organized In 1953 

"Amelia" has been described 
by musicologists as a satiric 
farce. It combines witty dialogue 
with sparkling music. "Amahl" 
was the first opera written ex- 
pressly for television. It was pre- 
miered in 1952, and has been pre- 
sented annually since. 

One of the few entirely non- 
professional opera companies in 



the United States, AMCOP has 
as its purpose the production of 
grand opera. Since its organiza- 
tion in 1953, it has presented 
"Cavalleria Rusticana," "La Tra- 
viata" and "La Boheme." One 
critic has placed it among the 
"finest nonprofessional opera 
companies in this country." 

Many faculty and staff mem- 
bers at the university aie mem- 
bers of the company either sing- 
ing or behind the footlights. 
Singing the role of Balthazaar in 
"Amahl" will be Leon Baron, 
member of the English depart- 
ment, and taking the title of 
"Amelia" will be Dorothy Feld- 
man, wife of Robert Feldman of 
thp psychology department. 

Tickets On Sale Monday 

Technical director and set de- 
sifrnei' is Heni-y Pierce of the 
speech department, and heading 
the properties committee are John 
McCombie of the French depart- 
ment and Harry Boyle, graduate 
student in English. 

Tickets for the double bill will 
go on sale Monday. A special 
telephone has been installed at 
Jones Library to take orders.

For the last poem of the }egu-

was a favorite of the audience. 
Fi-o§t said that since he had giv- 
en this poem so many times he 
now took pleasure in stressing 
the "cleverness" of the rhyme of 
the poem. 

After the program Frost talked 
for almost an hour with the stu-

On the 23rd of October the Tank Company 376th Infantry Regi-

new and larger quarters at 85 North Whitney St, Amherst, Mass. 
This move was the culmination of many weeks of planning and 
preparation necessitated by the increased enrollment in the com- 
pany this year; and secondly because of the desire of the Reserve 
Program in general, to provide better and more complete train- 
ing facilities for those in the reserve.

Wet Bet Is 
Placed On 
Tues. Election 

Tomorrow will be a day of 
reckoning for John Chafee and 
David Weinberg as much as 
for D wight Eisenliower and 
Adlai Stevenson. 

Weinberg and ChaflFee, both, 
juniors, have bet on the elec- 
tion. Loser will take a cold 
water-and-mud swim through 
College Pond at daybreak Wed-, 
nesday. 

Weinberg has gambled on 
Stevenson, Chaffee on Ike. 

Swim time will be 6:30 Wed- 
nesday. 

A similar bet was made four 
years ago, when John Heintz, 
then president of the Senate 
and a Collegian Editor, took 
his dip after betting on Stev- 
enson. Four Republican cron- 
ies watched Heintz freeze on 
his way across the Pond.

Goldberg Introductions In 
Pocket Library Editions 



Indian Seen In Rare 
Campus Appearance 



Three Pocket Library editions 
of nineteenth century classic 
works have recently been pub- 
lished with introductions by Max- 
well Goldberg, head of the Eng- 
lish department. 

Goldberg is nationally known 
in literary circles as the execu- 
tive director of the College Eng- 
lish Association and the subsid- 
iary Humanities Center for lib- 
eral education in an industrial 
society. 

His introductions are critiques 



of two novels by George Eliot, 
the Mill on the Flosa and Adam 
Beile, as well as Blackmoro's 
Lorna Doone. They reflect l:i.s 
major fields of interest which in- 
clude the principles ami thporic^ 
of literary criticism, and the 
area of nineteenth century liter- 
ature. 

Many of Goldbcig's articles 
and essays in those fields have 
appeared in professional journals 
of humanities and higher educa- 
tion, as well as the CEA journal. 
The Critic. 



Metawampee emerged from his 
safe seclusion this weekend to 
reign over the 44th annual Hort 
Show. 

P'or many students, this was 
the first opportunity to view the 
Indian who is known mostly 
through hearsay. To most, only 
the personified version of Meta- 
\vanipe<>, namely Bruce Beckwith, 
drum major, is known. 

The original Metawampee, the 
same which appeared this week- 
end, is a five-foot bronze statue, 
the gift of the class of 1950. 

Gift of Class of '.50 

Diirinir the year 1950, mem- 
bfis of the student body voted 
to re-dub the UMass athletic 
teams the "Rednien". Consequent- 



Honorary Colonel Finalists 
Picked By ROTC Members 



Members of the ROTC have 
selected five finalists for Honor- 
ary Colonel who will reign at the 
Mili Ball on Nov. 30. 

Miss Martha Trask, a fresh- 
man from Medford was nomin- 
ated by Jjowis dorm. She is a re- 
sident of Arnold and a member 
of Chorale. 

Arnold, QTV, and Theta Chi 
nominated Miss J<:nnet Roberts, 
a freshman from Greenfield. 

Miss Sarak Varanka from 
Pittsfield was SAK's nomination. 
Miss Varanka is a member of 

the Scrolls and Chi Omeira so- 
rority, yiu" is a sophomore. 

Another soplv M ■- Mary 

Beth Eherley, was iii'iniiiattil by 
KKG. Miss Kberley is a mem- 
Imt iif JJoister Doisters and KKti. 

Miss Leigh Henderson, a 
freshman from Ballardvale, was 

nominated by Ti aht i.e. 




ly, the senior class decided to 
dedicate the statute as a symbol 
of the new title. The name Mete- 
wampee was chosen to commem- 
orate the chief of a local Indian 
tribe who had been friendly to 
the white men. 

The statue, as a campus mem- 
orial, was shortlived, but the 
.«5pirit of the Rednien took root 
almost immediately. Less than a 
year after it was placed on a 
rock in front of Old Chapel, the 
statue disappeared. On the day 
that the loss was discovered only 
Metawampee's gun lay near the 
roik. On the following day, that 
too was missing. 

Later, the Indian was dis- 
covered at the bottom of College 
Pond and brought to a vault in 
the ofiicc of the university treas- 
urer for safe keeping. 

Makes Rare Appearance 

The material absence of Met- 
wanipee, however, did not destroy 
his tradition. So deeply-rooted is 
the name which he symbolizes, 
that the former title is virtua'ly 
forgotten. Even a prominent 
member of the athletic depart- 
ment who has been with the uni- 
versity since 1929 was doubtful 
about the earlier title. 

But reseaivh shows that the 
teams were called "Statesmen" 
ami this was discarded for the 
more (list inct ivf name. 

The "spirit of the Redmen" 
was taken from his hiding place 
on Spring Day in 1955 and re- 
\('aled to the student body. But

Standing above the green turf 
banked by mums, geraniums, and 
various species of shrubs, Meta- 
wampee represented a park mon- 
ument in this year's Hort Show. 

The show's background fea-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. MONDAY. NOVEMBER 5, 1956 



TWO CRISES: 

(1) Suez 

There are few things in this world more 
significant than man acting in a group as a 
social being. On the international level this 
significance is heightened. On the interna- 
tional level the nation is the social being, 
representative of the many peoples that 
make it up. The rationalization of the indiv- 
idual, paying lip service to the ideal while 
acting according to his own interest, applies 
to nations as well. 



Great Britain In The U.N. 

The floor of the United Nations Assem- 
bly is known to everyone as the sounding 
board of world opinion. It offers the na- 
tion a chance to explain its action in inter- 
national affairs to the watching world. 

The action of Great Britain in the past 
week has been enormously enlightening. 
Braving the censure of the entire world. 
Great Britain has pushed morality aside on 
the table of conduct and has replaced it with 
expediency. 

It is true that Great Britain was strong- 
ly provoked by Egypt's Nasser. It is also 
true that she is intimately concerned in the 
Suez dispute. But she has made a mistake 
that will cost her moral prestige for years 
to come. The United States has always 
guided its dealings with Great Britain on 
the assumption that Great Britain con- 
structed its foreign policy on a foundation 
of morality. Her flagrant violation of world 
opinion has harmed her relations with us. 
It has, by the company we've kept, thrown 
us in the same aspect to the rest of the world, 
that of a primarily self-interested nation. 

Our quick refusal to support Great Brit- 
Bin in her position has regained much free 
world faith in us. Whether Great Britain 
can extricate herself gracefully and success- 
fully rests upon pure chance, the blind fate 
which governs every action of expediency. 



(2) Hungary 



No one should be very surprised at the 
latest move of the Soviet, a f ullscale counter- 
attack upon the newly formed People's Re- 
public of Hungary. It has been evident 
throughout the popular uprising that Russia 
has been willing to relax restrictions upon 
its satellites as long as it was a controlled 
relaxation. In Hungary's case the control 
was lost. The revolutionary government at 
Gyoer quickly seized complete control of a 
territorial strip fifty by one hundred miles 
in Western Hungary along the Austrian 
border. 

What is surprising is that the armed in- 
tervention to protect national self-interest 
has a parallel with the action taken by a 
NATO member, Great Britain, in the Suez 
disturbance. 

If the Hungarian revolution is crushed, 
and it appears at present that the rebels have 
no chance, Russia will again set up puppet 
rule. With Nasser gone, will Great Britain 
follow suit?

'Before I met you, I was just another slob/' 



The Errant Editorialist 

(With his Near-East holdings in jeopardy, and the value of his 
East India stock rapidly depreciating, your Errant Editorialist views 
apprehensively the current ruckus over the Suez Canal area. As he 
has always fought for principle, and will continue to do so, he now 
takes Smith-Corona in hands, and herewith offers his views upon this 
most delicate foreign situation.) 

Your editorialist's initial reaction to the intelligence of the Brit- 
ish attack upon Egyptian forces was inspired by his more humanitar- 
ian proclivities. It does upset one's sense of fair play to realize that 
here is a modem mechanized nation, militarily equipped with aero- 
planes and aerial torpedoes, bombarding a people equipped, if his 
perusal of National Geographies has not grossly mis-informed him, 
witli nothing more formidible than war chariots and bronze-tipped 
spears. The carnage must be of deplorable and frightening propor- 
tions, despite the fact that these Eg^yptians have ready recourse to 
large triangular edifices which must serve them as capital bomb 
shelters. 

But the situation at Suez is much more complex and involved; 
one must not allow compassion to run away with him and sway his 
sensibilities to Pharaoh, without considering the larger issues in- 
volved. The larger issues involved being in this case, the great issues 
of stock and securities which have flooded out of the British coimting 
houses for the past few decades involving properties and trade profits. 
Let us be realistic; there is a lot of money involved here. 

(Your editorialist feels, understandably enough, a sense of person- 
al involvement here, being a director and a chief stockholder in King 
William Macaroon, Ltd., London, Cairo, and Bombay, a firm engaged 
in the production of macaroons, and lately branching out into eclairs, 
which was founded by his great-groat grandfather in 1827. Too, he 
is concerned with his interests in a teakwood forest in Ceylon, and 
with the price of elephants rapidly rising, additional shipping cost 
brought about by increased rates at Suez, or involved in shipping 
around the Cape of Good Hope, would be indeed ruinous.) 

Then there is always the sense of "The Empire," and undercur- 
rent of emotion and sentiment which ever colours the thoughts and 
actions of the true Englishman or Englishman-at-heart. With the 
defection of the American colonies, India, and the practical defection 
of the Dominion of Canada and Australia, and so forth, one can read- 
ily understand the alarm in the heart of the grand old lady, "The 
Empire," at the disruption of her domestic peace. One might counter, 
that with the estrangement of her largest and plumpest children, she 
should not be too taken aback that one of the scrawniest of her brood, 
this ditch across a desert, should be wrest from her. But this is to 
have no conception of a mother's love, nor a conception of the psy- 
chology of a desperate old lady. Despite the fact that the unseemly 
canal is indeed a rather homely excavation, and has "a face only a 
mother can love," the "Empire" still displays her maternal devotion 
and duty toward her ungainly off-spring. 

Remember, ye scoffers! If you are militant toward Britiannia for 
her actions, dare not to show your ungrateful face come next Mother's 
Day. ^Dick Bolt

Letters 

To The 

Editor 



To the Editor: 

Your announcement in last Monday's is- 
sue of the Collegian was of great interest to 
me because there has been so much discus- 
sion of payment for extra-curricular activ- 
ities. 

Since we are paying our newspaper staff, 
shouldn't we also pay members of the Oper- 
etta Guild, the Chorale, and the Roister Bols- 
ters, all of whom are doing their best to 
bring some measure of culture and enter- 
tainment to the student body? Shouldn't we 
pay our athletes, the boys who are putting 
so much energy into bringing to our school 
prestige, if not fame, in the world of sports? 
Naturally, in the case of athletes, payment 
other than scholarship aid, is impossible. 
Amateur standings must be maintained. As 
there is no similar rule regarding the stand- 
ing of student editors, we are, in general, in- 
clined to agree that they should be paid. Yet, 
considering the work of other organizations, 
we must ask ourselves, "What makes the 
editors' situation so different?" 

In Monday's article you state that: 

1. Professional organizations, such as the 
university news office and local papers, were 
hiring Collegian editors and depriving the 
paper of some of its most skilled personnel. 

2. The salary plan would enable an editor 
to reduce the time he had to work outside 
to meet his expenses. 

3. The abandoned scholarship plan had 
led to charges of favoritism in the distribu- 
tion of grants. 

Having discussed the matter with Profes- 
sor Musgrave, I would say that, if student 
editors must be paid, the scholarship plan 
just abandoned by the Collegian is a good 
plan which could very well be adopted by 
other organizations. WMUA personnel, for 
instance, might really profit by it, since their 
situation is similar to that of the newspaper 
staff's. My understanding is that the schol- 
arships granted extra money to those who 
had a need for it, while at the same time, it 
kept them from holding a second job with 
a professional organization. Thus they had, 
or were forced to have, time for the studying 
which is to often pushed into a secondary 
position in a student's life.

UMass Passing Attack 
Downs Vermont 26-19 

by TED RAYMOND 

The win-hungry Redmen "inch-ed" their way to a 26-19 victory over the UVM Cata- 
mounts in a thrilling tilt Saturday afternoon at Centennial Field ,n Burlington. 

Add"ng to the festivities of the contest was the initial celebi-ation of Vermont St^te 
Day Over 1000 high school students witnessed the event. The total attendance at the 

'^'" T^iofof *W waTsomewhat marred by injuries to Bill Goodwin and Roger Bar- 
ous. BUI was involved in a pile-up and came out of it with a fracture of the same leg 

that he injured in pre-season 



Briggsmen End Win Famine; 
Defeat Clark 4-1 As Cutting 
Scores Twice For Redmen 

by BILL CROTTY 

The UMass soccer team won their first game of the year, trounc- 
ing Clark 4-1 at Woix-ester, Saturday. After fighting hard all year, 
the Redmen had been subject to nothing but close losses and at best, 

ties. . . ,, 

Frustratingly, UMass played its best games against the power- 
houses such as the "Little Three," and its poorest against the teams 
they had the best chances of beating. Also, the boys had the mis- 
_— fortune to have six games in 



practice. It spelled finish to 
his service for the remainder 
of the season. Rog received a 
compound dislocation of his mid- 
dle finger on hfs left hand. He 
should be ready to see duty in 
the Brandeis tilt. 

With the return of Tommy 
Whalen to the starting line-up, 
the Redmen aerial attack got off 
to a rolling start. Tom pitched 
two strikes to Inch Ingram for 
TD's, and Ronnie Blume hit Dick 
Bergquist with a beauty for 
another score. Choo Choo Char- 
lie Mellen zipped over for the 
other UMass tally on a six yard 
trap play. 

The Catamounts looked like 
they were on their way to a shoo- 
in in the first period when they 
lugged the pigskin 70 yards to 
the first marker of the tilt. The 
Redmen struck back as Whalen 
hit Ingram with a 35 yard aerial 
on the left sideline, and Inch 
chugged over for the score. 

In the second period, after the 
Redmen got off a short punt 
from their own end zone, the 
Green Mountain lads pushed the 
ball right back to the goal, and 
fullback Simonds plunged over 
from the four. The Vermonters 
missed the PAT. 

The Redmen got a break then 
on a poor punt by the Cata- 
mounts and took over the ball 
on the Vermont 25. Mellen lugged 
the ball down to the 16, and then

took a pitch-out and passed to 
John Cieri who fought his way to 
the six. Then Choo Choo turned 
on the throttle and went over 
from the six on the trap play. 
He added the conversion and the 
Redmen led by a skinny point at 
the end of the first half. 

The Redmen must have smelt 
victory in their grasp as they 
really caught fire in the third 
quarter. Deciding that a one 
point lead was not too secure, 
they proceeded to rack up two 
more tallys in that period. After 
a flat pass to Ingram that went 
for a TD was called back on a 
penalty, Whalen called the iden- 
tical play on the next try. This 
time there was no penalty and 
Inch went into the end zone, cov- 
ering the last four yards on a 
leap with two tacklers hanging 
on his back pockets. 

Ronnie Blume engineered the 
final UMass score as he chucked 
a beauty to Dick Berquist going 
down the left sideline, and Dick 
took off and outraced two de- 
fenders to the goal. Most ob- 
servers agreed that Dick made 
the fastest time of his career 
on that sprint. 

In the final stanza, after two 
served that the Catamounts were 
successive penalties had pushed 
the Redmen back to their own 
1 foot line, the Catamnimts in- 
tei-cepted a Whalen pass and 
pushed it back to scoring posi- 
tion in short order. Simonds dove 
over from the one for the TD. 

ROOFTOP RAY-VINGS 

The ofliciating in this contest 
was some of the worst that this 
writer has ever seen on the grid- 
iron. For the greater portion of 
the game it was tolerable, but 
in the final period it was so bad 
that the air became tainted like 
the field was next door to a 
fish cannery. Not only were the 
four blind mice calling some on 
UMass that Yehudi must have 



committed, but they were fla- 
grantly ignoring some of the 
more outstanding offenses of the 
Vermonters. Even the partisan 
Burlington radio announcer ob- 
served that the Vermonters were 
getting away with grand larceny. 

The loss of Barous early in the 
contest hurt the Redmen to a 
great extent on defense, but it 
was a relief to learn that he will 
be back in the line-up for the 
next game. 

Tink Connolly, while playing 
his usual outstanding game, 
looked exceptionally good on de- 
fense as he was throwing some 
real thumping tackles at the Ver- 
mont backs. 

The Vermont partisans, noted 
for their show of illwill toward 
\isiting outfits, outdid them- 
selves as they threw smoke 
bombs onto the field, serenaded 
Charlie O'Rourke with Hawaiian 
melodies, and pelted the press 
box gentry with assorted refuse. 
When they called sweet-nothings 
to Chet Gladchuck, he answered 
them by waving his handker- 
chief to the adoring fans. It is 
rumored that in the future, vis- 
iting teams and fans will be 
housed in a bomb shelter when 
they are unfortunate enough to 
journey to Centennial Field.

Frosh Romp Over 
Springfield 27-6 

by STEVE NEEDEL 

Sparked by minute halfback, 
Armand Sabourin and a hard 
rushing line, the Umass fresh- 
men football team rolled over 
Springfield 27-6 at Alumni Field 
on Friday afternoon. 

UMass took the opening kick- 
off and marched to the visitor's 
20 yard line before being halted. 
Springfield took over here, but 
could not move the ball against 
the huge Frosh line, and were 
forced to punt. Little Sabourin 
put on a one man show from here 
on, turning in a 40 yard sprint 
which was nullified by an off- 
side penalty, and then exhibiting 
great shiftiness and speed in a 
60 yard jaunt to paydirt, helped 
along by a pretty block by quar- 
terback Jim Shay. Sabourin 
rushed the point to make it 7-0. 

Brown and Vangness Score 
In the second period, Tom 
Brown dashed 21 yards around 
end for a touchdown, and just 
before halftime intermission, re- 
serve quarterback Ken Vangness 
sneaked over from the one and 
fullback Roger Kindred slammed 
through for the 20th point. 

Early in the third period. Shay 

intercepted a pass at midfield 

and ran it back to the four, from 

which point Kindred bucked over

three weeks, three of them real 
toughies. Add to this the loss of 
Co-Capt. Lou McCarry and cen- 
ter-half veteran Dick Golas in 
the Amherst game for the sea- 
son. 

Things weren't too heartening! 
The boys came back, though. 
With Ben Doherty filling in su- 
perbly for McCarry, the squad 
got a break in the .schedule, and 
began to click. With Doherty 
registering two, they tied Bridge- 
port and Saturday reached their 
highpoint. 

Combining the Steel defense 
of Capt. Ned Bowler and Joe 
Morrone, which has been steady 
all season, with the offensive at- 
tack, which finally got rolling, 
they beat the Worcesterites scor- 
ing in every period but the first. 
In the first period, Clark, open- 
ing fast, scored first. With the 
opening of the second period, 
things took on a new slant. The 
Redmen front line kept the ball 
deep in the defenders territory, 
and Web Cutting, the redhead 
who has been playing a quiet but 
brilliant game throughout the 
season, broke the ice for the 
Briggsmen, tying the score. 

After intermission, the UMies 
went back to work. Billy Burke, 
last year's highest scorer, got 
the lead pass he was looking for 
and scored. The Redmen scoring 
ended in the last quarter when 
Webb Cutting scored his second 
goal of the day. 

The Briggsmen end the sea- 
son against Tufts on Friday.

ADLAI FAN EMERGES FROM BRISK POND SWIM 

Freezinsr and wet, Adlai Stevenson supporter Darid Weinberff, 
a junior, grins as he emerges from College Pond at 6:40 this 
morning to complete payment of an election bet with Ikeman 
John Chaffee. Chaffee, wearing his Ike button, is in left inset. 
Weinberg, in right inset, was grimly cheerful before his plunge. 
He exclaimed as he left pond: "I have only one comment to make: 
it's cold." About 30 students witnessed proceedings. 

Dean's Resignation Said 
Caused By Overwork 

Dean of Men Robert S. Hopkins has resigned the chair- 
manship of the powerful Committee on Recognized Student 
Organizations, but he has retained a seat on the committee. 
No successor has been named, but Provost Shannon Mc- 
Cune indicated last night that the new chaimian would be 
someone now on the board. 
The RSO committee in ef- 
fect controls extra-curricular 
activities. It has power over 
constitutions and iinances. 



As both Dean of Men and 
chairman of the committee, Hop- 
kins maintained a double bond 
on student activities. 

The dean said last night he 
resigned because he had "too 
much work." McCune also de- 
clared Hopkins quit because he 
was "loaded down with too many 
chairmanships." 

A student member of the com- 
mittee hinted last night he be- 



lieved Hopkins may have been 
urged to resign. 

A striking example of the 
Dean's double power came in De- 
cember. 195.5 when the Quarterly 
was suspended. 

Hopkins first banned publica- 
tion of the literary magazine 
(for allegedly obscene stories) 
as chairman of the RSO com- 
mittee, by ordering the RSO of- 
fice to cut off Quarterly funds. 
Later he suspended tho maga- 
zine as Dean of Men. 

Shortly thereafter he conduc- 
ted hearings on the suspension 
as chairman of the committee on 
discipline, a post he still holds.

Furcolo Beats Whittier; Other 
State Democrats Triumphant 

Dwight D. Eisenhower has avalanched to his second 
straight victory over Adlai Stevenson in a presidential elec- 
tion, but the General faces at least tw'o more years of an 
opposition Congress. 

Eisenhower slammed into early leads in several key 
states, including normally Democratic Virginia, Florida and 

Texas, piled up 57.6 ^r of the 
popular vote, and held Stev- 
enson to seven states to 
force him to concede at 1:23 a.m. 
today. 

The President's 457 electoral 
votes exceeded by 15 his total of 
four years ago. 

But Democrats . . . 
But by 8 a.m. this morning 
Democrats seemed certain to

toward slim control of the Sen- 
ate. 

The Democrats by 8 a.m. had 
clinched 192 House seats and led 
in 39 other races, a total of 231 
with 218 needed for a lower 
chamber majority. 

And with 49 Senate seats re- 
quired for control. Democrats had 
won 4G places and led in five 
others.

Democrats also swept the 
.state- wide ticket clean as Foster 
Furcolo ran far ahead of Lt. Gov. 
Sumner Whittier. Furcolo out- 
polled Whittier in Boston and 
western Massachusetts. Whittier 
led in mid-state Worcester Coun- 
ty. 

The Democrats also control 
both state legislative Iwdies and 
thus hold the key to the crucial 
redistricting scheduled for the 
next session of the General Court. 



Ike vs. Adlai: 
State -By -State 

Dwight Eisenhower won 457 
electoral votes, leaving Adlai 
Stevenson with 74 in seven states. 
Included (with electoral votes in 
parentheses) were: 

Alabama (11), Arkansas (8), 
Georgia (12), Mississippi (8), 
Missouri (13), North Carolina 
(14), and South Carolina (8). 

Republicans, needing to pick up 
one Senate seat for a 48-48 split 
and organizational r >ntrol, since 
Vice-President Nixon would break 
ties, fell short of their quest, al- 
though they won former Demo- 
cratic seats in New York, West 
Virginia, and Kentucky. 

Democrats won former Repub- 
lican seats in Idaho, Ohio and 
Pennsylvania to maintain their 
Senate margin.

Scott Praises Social Union 



William D. Scott, the man who has 
opened two .student union buildings, called 
the l^Mass Union "the best 1 have seen" last 
night. Tho new Student Union director was 
first director of both the Texas Technologi- 
cal College and West Virginia University 

unions in his eight -and-a-half years work in the 
field. 

The UMass Union comparps favorably with 
Uoiions at other mifM'' I uni\orsiti«'S in both 

beauty and adequacy, . t-ui said. He pointed out 
that the average Student Utiinn at middk'-.=5i7.*Hl 
universities provides 14 squair fi «t of spact- per 
student. In comparison, the Union here allows 22 
iquare feet per student. 



Scott said that discrepancies have been found 
in the former plans for setting up a 17-stutlent 
governing lx>ar(l for the Union, but, he added, a 
new system will be worked out and presented to 
President Mather "within a few days." Student ap- 
pointments will he made in the near future, he said. 

"The students will )iav(> an inte^jjral jiart irv the 
planning and scheduling of any I'nion activities," 
Scott ( (unrni iited. It is their Union, he said, and 
the students will play a major role in it.-; ni)eration.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1956

REVIEW .... 

On Adlai 

Adlai Stevenson conceded the election at 

1 -.20 a.m. EST today. In so doing, he gained 
the respect of the American people, Repub- 
licans and Democrats alike. 

He has been a two-time loser, but he isn't 
acting that part. His acceptance of the vot- 
ing outcome and his speech of the early 
morning show that he is a winner after all, 
deserving of the honor of having been a can- 
didate for the Presidency. 

On Ike 

President Eisenhower comes out of an- 
other contest victorious. His victory carried 
the punch of a TKO. Soon after the results 
began to come in, the outcome was apparent. 
The American people are especially desirous 
of having a general for a leader at this un- 
certain time. They have that general, and 
will expect swift action on the world crisis 
now that his seat is assured for the next 
four years. 

On Suez 

The official notice of "Cease Fire" came 
from the Egyptian forces at 2 a.m. EST. 
This was a concession on Nasser's part, since 
he had previously refused to acknowledge 
the "Cease Fire" call of the British unless 
all foreign troops were removed from the 
area. The troops remain, and Egypt has 
paused for breath. The real meaning of this 
action will be shown in future developments. 



Danger Spot.... 

There is a glaring danger spot on our 
campus, and to all appearances, it is being 
ignored. 

Part of the fence which was set up along 
the top of the ravine on the sidewalk ap- 
proaching Machmer is down. It has been 
down for some time now; nothing has been 
done about it. 

This leaves an unprotected spot along 
the walk where there is no fence or wire 
to prevent a slip into the ravine. 

There is a path that leads down to the 
ravine. If someone is interested, he can walk 
dovvTi. There's no reason why we should have 
to fall down.

LETTERWRITERS TALK 



ABOUT CLOTHES 



To The Editor: 



This is in reply to L. G. 
Sparke., letter en Bermudas 
printed on Wed. Oct. 31. 

Why is it that there is always 
someone around telling other 
people how to dress, talk, be- 
have, etc ? The world is a nice 
place to live in mainly because 
there are diverse groups of peo- 
ple with different tastes. If Mr. 
Sparkes doesn't like it, I sug- 
gest he try a hitch in the army 



where everyone wears a suit. 

Mr. Sparkes likes to wear a 
tie. Good! Give him a medal, 
but Ipave us bums out of it! As 
for Bermudas, I suggest Mr. 
Sparkes should look around in his 
hometown. Unless he's blind, he'll 
soon realize the fact that Ber- 
mudas are quite common any- 
time, anywhere, for any occasion. 

Social customs are not stable, 
but are constantly changing. 

Dan Dunwoodie 



AND SALARIES 



To the Editor: 



The primary reason why edi- 
tors of the Collegian should be 
paid is that it would directly in- 
fluence the quality of the paper. 

If editors were paid, they 
would have more responsibility 
to the student body to turn out 
a good paper. Of course, if a 
person is an editor, he would 
naturally like his job, but if he 
were to be paid for that task, 
he would have a greater incen- 
tive to do better work. 

Moreover, college editors are 
being hired to work for other 
college organizations. The editors 
would indeed be foolish to pass 
up an opportunity to earn money. 



and, as a result, the paper loses 
good editors. Perhaps, if a sal- 
ary was offered, more people who 
othei-wise would not have been 
on the staff and who are talented 
in newspaper work might decide 
to join the organization. 

The secondary reason why ed- 
itors should be paid is that they 
should be compensated for their 
time and efforts. It takes a great 
deal of time and effort to pub- 
lish a tri-weekly newspaper. 
Many of the good football play- 
ers have scholarships — so why 
shouldn't college editors, who are 
a select few, be remunerated for 
their service to the school? 

Howard Ledewitz 



AND MEN 



To the Editor: 



It has come to our attention 
that the freshmen boys are hold- 
ing a wroTvg opinion of us. We 
would like to correct this idea. 

We do not spend every Satur- 
day night at fraternity parties, 
as the boys on the hill seem to 
think. We do like tx) go to the 



movies, dancing and just plain 
walking. 

But the freshmen boys don't 
seem to realize this, and are 
consequently ignoring us. 

We would just like to take 
this means of informing them 
of our feelings.

ABOUT WHO'S WHO 

It should be a pleasure to be elected to Wfio'a 
Who in American Colleges and Universities, I sup- 
pose. Yet, to me, it is not, and cannot be as long 
as selection is carried out as it is at present. 

The choice committee is secn»t. Secre.-y casts 
doubt on the committee's objectivity and ability 
to know thoioughly student activities. 

Tlie problem of criterion for selection is the 
most important study we might make of our par- 
ticipation in Who's Who. How is academic work 
lated? Do students who devote so much time to 
extra-curricular activities that they perform me- 
diocrilly in class deserve recognition ? And if we 
say "Yes, they do", then is not the institution en- 
couraging non-academic behavior, as do most of our 
prestigious honor societies here, including Adelphia, 
Maroon Key, Scrolls, and to a lesser extent Mortar 
Board? 

Perhaps we might also think about the number 
of students who should be selected — in choosing 
34 or 5% of the seniors, aren't we making the 
honor, if that is what it is, an empty one? 

It embarrasses me to write this letter. I have 
just been picked for Wh^'s Who, and I do not wish 
t» bite the hand that pats my back. But my selec- 
tion allows me to talk about this without accusation 
of "sour grapes." Sam Kaplan 



What Is A Co-ed? 

A co-ed is the young freckle-faced child whom 
you sent off to the university. A kid hardly old 
enough to be alone at night without a sitter. She 
left with brown hair, brown eyelashes, bobbysox 
and tears rolling down her chubby cheeks as she bid 
you a sorrowful goodbye at the station, promising 
to write every day. 

A co-ed is the tall, lithe sophisticated lady that 
steps off the train at Christmas time sporting a 
blond cowlick over her forehead, mascaraed eye- 
lashes, a silver cigarette holder and a vocabulary 
consisting of a liberal sprinkling of four letter 
words. She has written home three times, asking 
for money. 

A co-ed becomes adept in simulating the beauty 
of a Venus, the logic of an Aristotle, the wisdom 
of a Solomon. Her thespian abilities are comparable 
to those of another Bernhardt. She laughs uproar- 
iously at all jokes i-elated in her presence, though 
she seldom, if ever, gets the ix)int. 

A co-ed spends the morning avoiding the pro- 
fessors whose classes she has cut. During the af- 
ternoon she develops neuralgia, headaches, and lum- 
bago ... all of which combine to make studying 
impossible. As the weekend approaches, she sud- 
denly sprouts pin-curlers, facials, manicures, mas- 
cara, and a southern drawl. 

A co-ed becomes vivacious on dates in direct 
proportion to the number of gin-fizzes with which 
her date is able to supple her. She makes up for 
the self-denial she has suffered all week when faced 
with residence food by gorging herself on chop- 
suey and chowmein when someone else is paying. 

She table hops from friend to friend showing off 
•her latest backless, strapless gown which is rein- 
forced with wires, bands, pads, scotch-tape and 
prayers. 

At three minutes to one she suddenly recalls 
that she has forgotten to get a late pass and is 
rushed back to her residence in a flurry of excite- 
ment while her date tries to figure what has hap- 
pened to his money and the evening. At the door- 
way she suddenly gives him a passionate kiss on 
the cheek thereby repaying him for the expenses 
involved. 

But you know that underneath it all she is still 
your little girl and that she loves you and needs 
you when she climbs on your knee, buries her face 
in your shoulder, and sobbingly says, "Oh, Daddy, 
I'm pregnant!"

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 1956 



Ingram Wins WW Award 
For Twin TD Performance 

If the Redmen could play Vermont every week, end 
Dave Ingram would certainly be an All-American. The 
UMass Co-Captain spearheaded the team to victory last 
Saturday by grabbing two scoring passes. For this effort 
he receives the Wellworth Award this week. 

Just a year ago, the outstanding flankman turned the 
Vermont game into a rout by racking up two tallies on pass 
plays. He certainly lends proof to the theory that history 
repeats itself. 

Inch really grabbed the spotlight against the Cata- 
mounts in the receiit 26-19 victory. The 6'3" 195-pound 
senior scored the first time on a 36-yard heave by Tom 
Whalen. Ingram's second TD ivas called back on an offside 
penalty, but on the next play he ivent downfield in the same 
pattern, faked two defenders out of position, snared the 
aerial, and dove over the goal line. 

His total yardage for the afternoon was 91 yards on 
five catches. This accounted for more than half of the 
UMass total offense. It gave Inch a season total of 201 
yards on 14 completions. Not bad for an end playing on a 
team that sticks pretty close to a running offense. 

Coach O'Rourke rates Ingram ahead of Tony Cham- 
bers, a 1952 Little All-America choice from UMass. The 
Redman mentor explains that while Chambers was a great 
receiver, he could not play the defensive game that Inch 
does. Dave is the nemesis of opposing quarterbacks. They 
can't run around his flank, and he rushes passers with all 
the fury of a Caribean hurricane. Opposing teams tend to 
run away from the Redmen's left side. 

Dave is a chemistry major, and is noted for studying 
just as hard as he plays football. He came to UMass from 
Fitchburg High where he captained both the football and 
basketball teams. 

STOCKBRIDGE SPORTS 

Aggies Edge Nichols 14-13 
On Fiorini's Conversion 

by DOC ENOS 

Share- l>ack Jon Holmes handed off to 
halfback Frank Olbrych who 
scooted from his own 35 to the 
Greenies 30. Trapped at this 
point, Olbrych lateraled to 
Holmes who was trailing the 
play. Jon dashed the rest of the 
way into the end zone. 

Frank Olbrych added the all 
important point on a sweep but 
was injured and left the game 
for good. 

Shortly before the half ended, 
the Aggies fumbled a punt deep 
in their own backyard to set the 
stage for the Nichols TD. The 
Greenies failed to add the point 
and left the field trailing 7-6. 

Another fumble on the kickoff 
gave Nichols its second score of 
the day. They converted and took 
the lead 13-7. 



Enraged by taunts of 
cropper" and "Farmers" 

screamed by the stands, the 
Stockbridge football team out- 
played Nichols Junior College de- 
cisively but won only by a close 
14-13 margin. 

Coach Steve Kosakowski's boys 
combined a well balanced offeni.e 
with a rugged defense to dump 
the Greenies on a sloppy gridiron 
last Friday. A steady rain fell all 
through the game which was 
marked with numerous penalties. 

Two long runs aided by some 
superb downfield blocking ac- 
counted for both Aggie scores. 
Two fumbles set up both Nich- 
ols tallies. John Fiorini added 
the extra point that gave Stock- 
bridge its victory. 

Razzle-dazzle 

The first Agg^e score was a 
piece of razzle-dazzle. Quarter-

Led by the sensational

the Tads have contrived to

First Sportswriters 
All'YanCon Team 
To Be Announced 

With the finish of the football 
season in sight, the usual rash 
of All-Star selections is begin- 
ning to jell. The All-America bal- 
lots are beginning to roll in, and 
the pro scouts are starting to 
storm the bastions in earnest. 

Here in the Yankee Conference 
the six coaches pick an All-Op- 
ponent team, and the selections 
are compiled to make up the of- 
ficial YanCon All-Stars. This year 
the Collegian is taking steps to 
initiate another All- YanCon team. 
Letters are being sent to sports 
editors of all the YanCon student 
newspapers with ballots enclosed. 
The results will be tabulated 
here, and the various newspapers 
will be notified of players from 
their school that have been select- 
ed. They will be asked to send a 
photo of the players along with a 
thumbnail sketch and a compos- 
ite photo of the team will be 
made up along with a story made 
up from the sketches and sent 
out to all YanCon student news- 
papers. The team will be an- 
nounced simultaneously in all the 
publications.

Nichols' frantic defense kept the 
Aggies from scoring until the 
final period. Then Paul Restuc- 
cia knifed through center for 55 
yards and the tying touchdown. 
Fiorini added the point and 
Stockbridge controlled the ball the 
rest of the way to pre.serve its 
win. 

Aggie Round Up 

Just two minutes before the 
scheduled kickofl", Stockbridge 
was notified the game would be 
played under inter-collegiate 
miles. The team ordinarily plays 
under prep school rules that al- 
low free substitution. This 
caused some hasty revisions in 
the starting lineups but Kosa- 
kowski's well conditioned team 
showed they can win under any 
set of rules. 

Co-Captain for the Aggies 
this afternoon was George 
Knowles, a former soccer player 
at Nichols. George, who had nev- 
er played football before this 
year, turned in a fine perfor- 
mance against his old school- 
mates.

Redmen Answer 
Criticism With 
LateSeasonSpurt 

by TED RAYMOND 



This day seems like a good and appropriate time to 
contemplate the "Mystery of the Missing Nasty Letters to 
the Editors Concerning the Athletic Program at UMass." 
A long and windy title for a short and windy tirade against 
our football team in particular, and our athletic department 
in general. Only two short weeks ago there was an abun- 
dance of comment on the mediocrity of the grid squad. Now 
the commentary is as droughty as the Sahara. 

The team has risen to their own defense and more or 
less crammed the ignorant and ill-chosen words into the col- 
lective gaping mouths of the infidels. So herewith a bushel 
of kudos to Coach O'Rourke and the team for blandly ig- 
noring the bleating cries in the wilderness and, instead of 
voicing their answer in meaningless phrases, showing it in 
black and white win figures in the records and touchdowns 
on the scoreboard. 

Holyoke Has UMass Stars 

For those who can take their football in large doses, 
I would strongly recommend a trip to Holyoke on Sunday 
afternoon to see the Holyoke Knights in action. Not only 
are they a good quality semi-pro outfit, but they are loaded 
with former Redmen grid greats. 

Having an unusual piece of spare time (and even more 
unusual, a spare green bill in my pocket) I was enticed to 
journey down and witness last Sunday's tilt with the Quincy 
Manets. Nestled among the starting lineups for both teams 
was a galaxy of UMass stars. Noel Reebenacker and Knob- 
by Nolan arc fixtures in the Manet outfit, and for the 
Knights the services of Cappy Kidd, Joe Cardello, Ron 
Mathieson, Red Johnson, and Jumbo LaFontana were on 
tap. 

Lacrosse Action Tomorrow 

Tomorrow afternoon the short odds boys can get a 
pre-season peek at the lacrosse squad in action. An intra- 
squad game has been planned and some exciting play is in 
the ofl^ing. The stickmen have been practicing for several 
weeks, and Coach Dick Garber thinks that the contest \vill 
provide some enjoyable sports entertainment for the specta- 
tors. Another good take without a resulting dent in the 
billfold.

JULIE ANDREWS says: 

Ferilyy a Professor 7ggins 
among magazines T 

Julie Andrews, twenty -one year -old British girl, plays Eliza 
Doolittle in the sensational Broadway success "My Fair Lady" 
—a musical adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's "Pygmalion." 



Q. Miss Andrews, had you ever been away from your family before you 
arrived in this country two years ago? 
A. Never, and I still become dreadfully homesick. But I do talk with them 
several times a week. 

Q. By phone? 

/t No— by phonograph. We talk into recording machir,£s, and airmail the 
records. They are so clear I can even hear my brothers arguing in the back- 
ground about whose turn is next. It is as if we were all in one room. 

Q. You never exchange the usual kind of letter? 

A. Very seldom, Vm afraid. But we post back and forth bits of particidar 
interest— like newspaper reviews, and favorite articles from The Reader's 
Digest. 

Q. Just the Digest? 

A. Oh, no, there are others sometimes— but the Digest is our magazine. 
Mummy and Daddy have always read it, and I began when I was twelve, 
playing music halls. I had to miss school, and my teaching governess went 
through every issue with me on the run. It was part of my lessons. 

Q. Do you still read it on the nm? 

A. Oh, yes— waiting for assignments, waiting for buses, even waiting for 
curtain cues. I hope I never have to be without it. When I wish to be 
amused, the Digest amuses me; and when I need to be scolded or instructed, 
I can always find an article that talks to me like — 

Q. Like a Dutch uncle? 

A. No, much more delightfully— more like Professor *Iggins in "My Fair 
Lady" showing a new world to Eliza Doolittle. 

In November Reader's Digest don't miss: 



CONDENSATION FROM FORTHCOMING

KeoghAsks 
For Look 
Into Phys E 

An investigation of clothing 
issue by the physical education 
department was asked by Rich- 
ard Keogh at Wednesday night's 
Senate Meeting. 

His motion to have the Service 
Committee study inadequacies in 
the issuance of athletic clothing 
in that department was passed 
by the Senate. 

Also passed were motions to 
have committee concerned study 
the possibility of permitting tele- 
vision in men's dorms and of 
building a parking lot behind 
Van Meter. 

Before adjourning, the Senate 
approved a motion to refer to 
the finance committee appropria- 
tion of $28.40 to cover expenses 
of Pre-Med Club members who 
had attended a New York medi- 
cal conference. 

Keogh, in asking for the in- 
vestigation of the physical educa- 
tion department, stated that for 
the past six weeks the depart- 
ment has failed to issue clean 
clothing to the students. 

In floor debate, a member of 
the Senate explained that the 
washing machines used to clean 
equipment had broken down. 
Keogh was then asked what he 
would suggest be done after an 
investigation such as he asked 
takt's filace. 

Keogh replied that until the 
machines were fixed or other ar- 
rangemi-nts were niaiic, filiysical 
education cla.«!ses should be sus- 
pended. He tMiiphasized that the 
current |iractice endangers stu- 
dent health. 

The possibility of having tele- 
vision sets in the men's dorms 
will be studied by the Men's Af- 
fairs Committee. 

Last year, a special ad hoc 
committee studied a similiar mo- 
tion. Permission was granted, but 
action was not continued as that 
committee failed to submit a re-

More Buildings, Exchange 
Program Planned For 1957 

by JOHN CALLAHAN 

President J. Paul Mather has outlined proposed expen. 
ditures at the Univereity for 1957 totalling $4,965,000 for 
the construction of specialized schools and the purchase of 
furnishings and equipment. He also predicted that the Uni- 
versity's goal of 10,000 students would be met by 1965. 

Mather made the proposals known and discussed the 
developments of the past three years in a speech to the fac- 
ulty. Parts of the speech were made public at a med;ing 
he addressed of the Greater Springfield Alumni Associa- 
tion at the Hotel Sheldon Wednesday night. 

~ Proposed For 1957 

Included in the proposed out- 
lay for the coming year aro: 

1. Second portion of the Sci- 
ence Center, including furnish- 
ings and equipment, and work- 
ing drawings for the third sec- 
tion, $2,448,000. 

2. Physical education out- 
door facilities for men, includ- 
ing equipment, $162,000. 

3. School of Education and 
laboratory, including equip- 
ment and furnishings, 
$1,300,000. 

4. Plans for an infirmary, in- 
cluding furnishings and equip- 
ment, $60,000. 

5. Plans for engineering shops 
and drafting rooms, including 
furni.shings and equipment, 
$30,000. 

Also included in the proposed 
expenditures are funds for gen- 
eral maintenance of buildings, 
cold storage laboratory plans and 
the acquisition of additional land. 
File Housing Bill 
The administration is also fil- 
ing a bill, according to Mather, 
requesting the state to construct 
$2,000,000 worth of low rental 
housing for faculty and married 
students on a priority basis. 

"We are going to expand, we 
are expanding," he said, "and we 
will reach our target of 10,000 
students by 1965 ... and with 
the highest level of recognized 
quality in the country." 

The president also announced 
that plans are being made with 
the State Department for a 
$175,000 a year exchange pro- 
gram with the University of Hok- 
kaido in Japan for scientists and 
professors. 

"This program . . . will," he 
.said, "not only bring the Univer- 
.sity prestige and recognition, but 
represents a practical, education- 
al) and spiritual contribution evi- 
dencing our responsibility to the 
nation and the world as well as 
the local scene." 

$11,000,000 In Three Years

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1956 



Change 
Lists Adelphia Average 

The oldest honor society on campus, 
Adelphia, has revised its constitution. 

Changes include a four point article list- 
ing the aims of the society, but — most impor- 
tant — the senio)- men's honor society now 
lists a minimum scholastic average as pre- 
requisite to membership. 

Adelphians Must Have Cumulative 
Graduation Average Requirement 

Long criticized for its lack of academic 
emphasis in membership selection, the "hon- 
or society" will require, effective with the 
selection of the 1957-1958 Adelphians, a re- 
quirement that each member have attained 
the university cumulative average required 
for graduation at the time of his election 
during his junior year. 

The Maroon Key, sophomore men's so- 
ciety now remains the only so-called honor 
group that has no scholastic requirement. 

Most Important— Leaders In Scholarship 

Objections from opposers to the average 
requirement have often put forth the argu- 
ment that the really active leaders on the 
campus will not meet the standard because 
of their overload of extra-curricular activ- 
ities. 

However true this may be in many cases, 
it nevertheless remains that an honor soci- 
ety's members should first be leaders in the 
most important area of college life — aca- 
demics. 

Don't Sacrifice Scholarship To Activities 

We hope that Adelphia has adopted the 
scholastic requirement permanently and even 
if selection of some deserving men is pro- 
hibited by the requirement. For, the main- 
tenance of a high standard of scholastic 
achievement as a basis for honor society 
membership will cause the many talented 
men and women on the campus to think 
twice before sacrificing their studies to extra 
curricular activities to the intolerable degree 
that is now evident all over campus. 

We now have three honor societies. We 
hope the fourth will follow. 

Adelphia Lists its Aims 

The newly revised Adelphia constitution 
contains these four aims of the society: 

(a) To recognize men who have attained 
a high standard of leadership in collegiate 
activities, to encourage them to continue 
along these lines, and to inspire others to 
strive for similar conspicuous attainment. 

(b) To bring together the most repre- 
sentative men in college who are leaders in 
the various branches of student activity and 
thus to create an organization which will 
help to mould the sentiment of the institu- 
tion on questions of campus interest. 

(c) To preserve valuable traditions and 
customs. 

(d) To stimulate worthy attitudes for 
the improvement of the general welfare of 
the institution. 



A Letter. . . 

Calls For 'Natural Man' 



The writer is indeed . . . disillusioned to discover 
at our University a small but brazenly critical ele- 
ment whose pleasure it is to direct unfounded in- 
vective upon the mass of students who strive to 
maintain our dynamically pervasive atmosphere of 
refinement and intellectuality. So it is with confi- 
dence in the support of the majority for whom 
I speak that I undertake the constructive exposure 
of the superficiality. 

The undisceming segrment has blasphemously 
accused the enligrhtened majority of vices unimagin- 
able in a cultural milieu the equivalent of our 
University. . . . These persons. . . , have had the 
gross stupidity to completely misconstrue old boldly 
intellectual actions and remain blind to our high 
purpose. 

However . . . they shall one day come upon the 
profound realization that, having attained a high 
level of intellectual refinement and taste, the truly 
cultured individual, as self-realizer, must then cul- 
tivate with ascetic devotion, his opposing nature: 
the natural man, , . . having accomplished this dual 
cultivation, the whole man has been developed; he 

lives life at a degree of intensity inconceivable to 

the enlightened. 

Happily, the vast mass has achieved this realization; and . . . has 
achieved the prerequisite level of basic culture from which point they 
are thus enabled to turn with religious devotion to the impleasant but 
equally necessary work of developing their baser parts . . . 

The great mass of us have attained the cultural level and dis- 
cernment that must precede the realization that our natural, yes, our 
base, natures must be cultivated. There are those, however, who are 
on the border line of commitment to the life of intensity of freedom 
and tension. I call upon the latter to renounce the insipid life we 
all abhor and to develop the iron courage of abnegation which will 
enable them to cultivate the common, the obtuse, where they shall 
discover the secrets of the truly civilized man. 

Stan MacDonald 




You'll have to think of a better excuse than that, Sturdley." 

—John Gralenski 



Is 41 Years Old 

Adelphia was formed in 1915 by men 
whose devotion to their alma mater is as 
honored as their names. The founders were 
Dean William Machmer, Curr>'^ Hicks, Har- 
old Goro and William Doran. 

Congratulations, Adelphia, you're an 
honor society.

University Dames Enjoy 
Life^ Activities On Campus 

by SHIRLEY SOKOLETSKY 

Campus life without classes, the dream of the average university co- 
ed, is a reality to hundreds of women on our campus. 

These girls live in apartments on or close to campus, have organized 
active interest groups, and may graduate in May without ever having 
stepped inside a classroom or taken a final. 

They are the University Dames, two hundred strong, the wives of 
married students in the graduate and undergraduate schools of the uni- 
versity. 

Closely organized and active on campus, the Dames of the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts are an integral part of the National Association of 
University Dames, the numerous chapters of which unite students' wives 
on campuses from the University of Michigan to Miami U. 

Originated in 1954 by Mrs. J. Paul Mather and members of the 
University Faculty Women, the local chapter of Dames holds a gradua- 
tion ceremony in the spring in which the wives of graduating students re- 
ceive "diplomas" from the chapter which signify the completion of their 
college careers. Participation in the exercises is customarily shared by 
President and Mrs. Mather and Provost and Mrs. McCune. 

For those wives interested in bridge, sports, sewing, drama, swim- 
ming, or music, weekly group activities are arranged regularly on cam- 
pus and with the aid of university facilities. 

A hayride, fashion show, Christmas party, hat parade, and dinner 
dance highlight the agenda of the Dames, this year, as do distinctive pro- 
grams and speakers scheduled for regular meetings. 

Service to the campus and community is administered by the Dames 
through participation in preparations for the annual blood drive, raising 
funds for the March of Dimes, providing refreshments for the University 
Open House, and supplying waitresses for various banquets on campus. 

At Home On Campus 

Members and their families live in Hampshire and Suffolk Houses, at 
the West View Trailer Park in Amherst, or in apartments close to cam- 
pus. 

Apartments in the married students' dormitories consist of three or 
four unfurnished rooms and are assigned with the size of the occupant's 
family in mind. Simple and compact, the rooms are arranged for living 
in tlu' dormitory style. 

Fairly New, But Noteworthy 

One of the newest of more than 70 cliapters of National Dames, the 
UMass assemblage has instituted an extensive program of caniiMis and 
community activities which has been recognized with appi'oval at nation- 
al conventions. This year, when Danuvs from American colleges and uni- 
versities gather at Northwestern University at convention time, the ITni- 
versity of .Massachusetts chapter of N.A.U.D. will be able to recap their 
third year of recogni/ed organization o?i campus. 

You Can See Them Everywhere 

Bound together by a mutual bond of comiianionship and undc^-stand- 
ing. the Dames idoTitify themselves by a small pin whicli ?-<'prese?ifs the 
emblem of their organization: a wedding y\n)i i)i( reed hy an arrow. It 
is a symbol of the creed which underlies their organizational purpase and 
campus life. 

The ring symbolizes fidelity ; the airow, friendship. 



Another Letter re . . . 
THE BERMUDA BATTLE 

With your kind permission, sir, I shall attempt 
to answer Mr. Dunwoodie's letter which appeared 
in the November 7th Collegian. 

Very good, Mr. Dunwoodie, you have brought out 
some interesting points. I'll agree with you that 
bermudas are quite common and social customs are 
constantly changing. 

I won't agree that they are 'quite common any- 
time, anywhere, for any occasion." They, for ex- 
ample, are not worn as evening dress at a formal 
dance. They are forbidden on the streets of one 
large European country and a 
large Canadian province. I doubt 
if you or I will see the time 
when it's no longer customary 
for ladies to wear skirts. 

I don't mean to go on record 
as being against bermuda shorts 
or any other form of dress as 
long as it is decent. I'm merely 
of the opinion that when we at- 
tend class, we should attend as 

ladies and gentlemen If for 

no other reason, by acting thusly, 
we try to show respect for our 
distinguished instructors, pro- 
fessors, and other educators. 

If it seemed like I was trying 
to dictate to the student body 
any mo-lo ..f dress, let me nullify 
that btiit'f promptly. What I 
have written and what I write 

now are merely my opinions 

I can only suggest. 

Concerning the neckties, I 
didn't mean to be taken literally. 
I said ... it as a figure of speech. 
I don't think I need to start a 
society column for men in order 
to make it possible for them to 
dresa properly. I will add this 
as a closing hint. I heard a coed 
as she was depositing her tray 
at the Dining Commons say, 
"Some of the chinos the students 
weai- look like they've been slept 
in."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBEH 9, 1956 



Peerless Predic tions , . . 
Redmen To Stop Judges 

by TED RAYMOND 



The Brandeis Judges come into 
town Saturday afternoon to try 
the Redmen's case. They tote a 
heavy gavel with them in the 
person of Jim Stehlin. 

Arguing the case for the Red- 
men will be the same sterling 
group that has carried UMass to 
two consecutive victories. The on- 
ly switch in the Redmen roster 
for this outing is the return of 
Al Bedrosian to the fullback po- 
sition. The scrappy little soph 
ran from fullback for the fresh- 
men last year, but this season 
he has seen duty as a guard. 

The Judges are a tough team 
to figure on the strength of 
their past performances. After 
tying Springfield, probably the 
best small college team in New 
England, they lost to the same 
Northeastern outfit that the Red- 
men dumped. 

Scorewise the rating chart 
would go thusly: 



Brandeis 20 Springfield 20 
Springfield 42 Connecticut 14 
Connecticut 71 UMass 6 
UMass 12 Northeastern 6 
Northeastern 19 Brandeis 6 

According to this chart any- 
thing could happen. Possibly 
someone could make .something 
out of a mess like that, but the 
Peerless Predictor being some- 
what prone to mistakes as evi- 
denced by last week's record of 9 
right and 6 wrong, school spirit, 
a hot hunch rule, and the analytic 
mind, we come up with 

UMass over Brandeis by 2 TD's 
Amherst over Trinity 
Tennessee over Georgia Tech 
Stanford over Oregon State 
Minnesota over Iowa 
Michigan over Illinois 
Columbia over Dartmouth 
Syracuse over Holy Cross 
Notre Dame over Pittsburgh

Coach Praises Booters; 
Looks For Bright Future 



Frosh Harriers Top Jeffs; 
Keelon^ Atkinson Star 

by STEVE NEEDEL 



The freshmen distance demons 
of the hilland-dale world, Jim 
Keelon and Dick Atkinson, paced 
the UMass frosh cross country 
team to a 23-32 victory over Am- 
herst College on the Jeff's rain- 
soaked two mile course. 

The speedy Mr. Keelon plodded 
through the puddles to finish in 
the top notch time of 11:53, 
twenty seconds ahead of Atkin- 
son. Bill Knowlton came in fifth 
for the Little Redmen while 
Doug Burhoe and Everett Brin- 
son ended up in seventh and 
eighth respectively. 

Monday, Coach Horn's boys 
travel to Boston to defend the 
New England freshmen harrier 
title which they copped last fall. 
Umie eyes will be cast upon aces 
Kpclon and Atkinson, both of 



whom have the potential to make 
a strong showing in the holiday 
afternoon meet at Franklin Park. 
Keelon and Atkinson have had 
plenty of experience over the 
hilly Boston course as they ran 
two meets there earlier in the 
season. 

Keelon has come a long way 
since his first race, in which he 
was far behind the winner, to 
establish himself as a definite 
threat to other New England 
runners, while Atkinson should 
do very well also. Knowlton, who 
has shown steady improvement 
may come through with his best 
effort to pick up some valuable 
points.

"Mr. Soccer", as far as the 
University i>f .Massachusetts and 
the New England Intercollegiate 
League is concerned, is Larry 
Briggs. 

With the final whistle of to- 
day's contest with Tufts, Coach 
Briggs will have completed twen- 
ty-four years at the helm of 
UMass soccer squads. 

The two co-captains, Ned Bow- 
ler and Lou McCarry, have done 
a great job during this year of 
rebuilding, although the recon- 
struction has been complicated 
by numerous injuries to key play- 
ers. 

Co-Captains And Team 

"They've been great and kept 
up a remarkable spirit", com- 
mented Coach Briggs. "Since 
Pve been coaching, I can't re- 
member so many injuries in one 
season. Its funny too, because 
its been the same story with 
football." 

Bowler and McCarry both are 
graduates of Springfield Cathe- 
dral High where they were 
standouts in soccer and hockey.

LARRY BRIGGS (center) has guided the university soccer squads 
for the past 24 years. NED BOWLER (left) and LOU McCARRY 
are the co-captains of the 1956 team which faces Tufts at Med-

hopes for next year's squad. This 
has been an unusual year as far 
as the quantity anl quality of 
frosh material is concerned. Add 
the soph potential of Paul "Zip" 
Mailman, Bemie Goclowski, and 
Dick Zanini plus returning jun- 
iors Golas, Dube, Cutter, Green, 
Hawkins, Lindquist, Sundquist, 
and Morrone, and the future as- 
sumes a rosy hue. 

In the game of soccer, the co- 
captains have real decisions to 
make and are constantly utilized 
as both offensive and defensive 
signal callers. Considering that 
the majority of the team had 
no soccer experience prior to 
college, the UMie co-captains 
have done a marvelous job di- 
recting the team. 

Cooperation Important 

Although Ned and Lou are 
both products of the same high 
school and have similar training, 
they don't think alike when it 
comes to soccer. Consequently, 



they work together and hash 
out plays. They've earned the 
admiration of the team through 
their cooperation. 

Coaches Ski Team 

Beside his regular duties as 
soccer coach, Briggs is an asso- 
ciate professor of physical edu- 
cation and coach of the Redmen 
ski team. He is active in the 
National Archery Association 
and the American Red Cross. 
Briggs is also tournament man- 
ager of the Western Mass Small 
Schools Basketball Tournament, 
a position he has held for the 
past thirty years. Larry is also 
one of the better skiers in the 
area and is a past president of 
the U.S. Eastern Amateur Ski 
Association. 

He makes his home in Amherst 
with his wife and two children; 
Larry Jr., 13, and Pat Ann, 11. 
Mr. and Mrs. Briggs celebrated 
their eighteenth wedding anniver- 
sary in August.

Who's Ignoring 
Whom?? 

This is a letter in answer to the 
Crabtree girls whose names were 
withheld from the letter in the 



Nov. 7 issue of the Collegian. 
With all due respect to the girls 
concerned, the men on the hill 
would like tx) pose a few pertinent 
questions. 

(1) If the girls weren't at the 
fraternity parties on those nights 
that dances were held in their 
dorms, where . . . were you ? 

(2) Too bashful to come down 
and dance? 

(3) If the freshmen boys seem 
to be ignoring the girls what are 
fifty boys doing sitting around in 
the lobby. This contradicts your 
statement that the boys are ig- 
noring the girls. We strongly 
recommend that all girls read . . . 
"What Is A Coed?" for our opin- 
ion on the subject. 

There is a dance at the Castle 
on the Hill on the 17th of this 
month. If you wish to prove your 
supposed sincerity we will see

Keogh Files Motion Asking Senate To Place Minimum 
Marie Requirements On Extra-Curricular Membership 

Honors Subgroup 
Convenes Tonight 



by MARCIA BEARDSELL 

Criticism, complaints, suggestions and personal reac- 
tions from all students concerning ways to raise the intel- 
lectual level on campus will be encouraged tonight at the 
meeting of the Subcommittee for Scholarship of the Honors 

Committee. 

Professor Donald Rogers, chairman of the subcommit- 
tee, will direct the student-faculty meeting tonight at 7 in 
the Faculty Club Lounge. 

Rogers has said he hopes that suggestions from stu- 
dents will be given regarding 
what they feel are existing 
handicaps in achieving a 

first-rate education and how Aey 
f«el such sitiiations may be over- 
come. 

Since its first meeting last 
spring, the subcommittee, Rog- 
ers reported, has helped popular- 
ize scholar^p, such as die an- 
nouncement of the Phi Kappa Phi 
scholars at the fall convocation- 
The subcommittee also advises 
the honorary groups, Addphia 
and Isogon, in their talks to 
freshmen during orientation 
week. The subcommittee hopes 
that with financial aid, scholar- 
ships may become available and 
will attract to this campus stu- 
dents of outstanding ability who 
might otherwise choose another 
college, Rogers said. 

He reported tha(t the subcom- 
mittee profited considerably from 
two such meetings last spring 
and hopes that an equally intei> 
esting and vigorous discussion 
will occur tonight. 

Other members of the subcom- 
mittee, Professors H*»rhprt Rolla- 
sor of zoologry, Israel Rose of 
math, Edward Driver of sociol- 
ogy, and Edward Davis of bot- 
any, also will attend.

Chaffee Claims Men's Court 
Almost Impotent, Ill-Chosen 



A former chairman of the 
Senate's Men's Affairs Com- 
mittee attacked Men's Judi- 
ciary last night as a "poorly 
selected, almost powerless 
judicial organization," and 

asked for reforms to strengthen 
its eflfectiveness. 

Pleading for a stronger judi- 
ciary was John B. Chaffee, Jr., a 
jvmior. 

ChaflFee, as head of Men's Af- 
faire last year, led the selection 
of justices for the court, and as a 
dormitory counselor held the pow- 
er to start a recalcitrant student 
on the road to a secret judiciary 
hearing. 

The process of choosing jus- 
tices for the five-man court is a 
secret election within Men's Af- 
fairs. That committee, composed 
of all male senators, votes for the 
justices. 



Asks Open Meetings, 
Initial Power 



Minimum Would Equal Average 
Needed To Advance One Class 

by RICHARD MILLER 

A motion which proposes scholastic average require- 
ments for all students wishing to participate in any major 
campus activity is slated to come up on the senate floor to- 
morrow night. 

The motion, submitted by Richard Keogh, the Green- 
ough solon, also suggests minimum averages for officehold- 
ei-s in any Recognized Student Organization. 

Keogh said last night that his proposal will not pro- 
hibit membership in departmental clubs and in similar or- 
ganizations to students with low averages. The point of the 
motion, he said, is to preventstudents with low overages 
from participating in time- consuming activities. 

. — Passage of the motion in its 

present form would require a 
student to have attained, by the 
beginning of the school year, an 
average high enough to insure 
his entry into the next succeed- 
ing academic year, in order to 
actively participate in student 
activities. This would be in ac- 
cordance with the prevailing uni- 
versity standards of scholarship. 
Keogh's motion follows closely 
the announcement by Adelphia of 
a minimum academic require- 
ment. 



Man Before Occupation, 
Carnegie Report Urges 

Higher education will be hurt beyond repair if it ne- 
glects the parts of the curriculum that place the man be- 
fore the occupation, the trustees of the Carnegie Founda- 
tion for the Advancement of Teaching have concluded in 
their 55th annual report. 

In a reprint from the report entitled "Liberal Educa- 
tion," the trustees say that ~ 



such neglect "is fairly wide- 
spread today." 

Several Pressures 

The report outlines several 
pressures which have combined to 
reduce the power of the liberal 
arts coITege, the "traditional 
home of liberal education." 

1) The graduate professional 
school has demanded that under- 
graduate schools absorb some 
specialized training, thus dimin- 
ishing "the freedom of the col- 
lege to determine its own curric- 
ulum." 

2) T'owfrful undrrpraduate 
g;i, ii:i'i .^choiils I ducation and 



business administration are cited 
as outstanding examples — com- 
pete "fiercely and unsuccessfully" 
for traditionally liberal arts stu- 
dents. 

3) The unbridled elective sys- 
tem has fragmented the curric- 
ulum and teamed with the spe- 
cialization of knowledge to make 
it ""asy for the liberal arts de- 
partmrnts to become profession- 
alized." 

The report suggests that the 
goals of a liberal e4lucation should 
include: 

Solf-knowlodffo — knowledge of 
((%ivihi)ir(l on page 4) 



Composition of the court is 
two seniors, two juniors, and one 
sophomore. 

As Chaffee describes the pro- 
cess, the voting is occasionally 
determined by personal attacks 
on the candidate by members of 
Men's Affairs. 

Campaign Speeches 

First a candidate presents him- 
self to the committee and, in 
effect, gives a campaign speech 
on why he should be picked. Then 
committee members dissect the 
candidate. This process continues 
until all the candidates have spo- 
ken. 

Finally the committee votes 
for a justice. 

Chaffee cites as an example 
the case of a sophomore who was 
"slandered" out of contention by 
an attack from the president of 
the candidate's club. Often, Chaf- 
fee claims such attacks are ir- 
relevant or based on ancient 
feuds, fraternity loyalties, or 
snap judgments of three years 
past. Voting, Chaffee maintains, 
is often along fraternity lines. 

How would he change the se- 
lection method? 

Chaffee asserts that the mode 
of choice depends on the juris- 
diction of the justices. Their pow- 
er at present extends only to 
those cases allowed them "at the 
pleasure of the Dean of Men. 

Initial Jurisdiction 

"They should have initial juris- 
diction in any violation of uni- 
versity regulations that does not 
also constitute a violation of fed- 
eral or state law," Chaffee ar- 
gues. 

This would be n jrweeping 
chanpTo, and sItkv \ho Hohnol 
would hv itn •tini; stiidctits wi'h 
go mwh of its priwtT, he thinks, 
the ailniinisl ration should have 



a strong voice in the selection 
of the students who would handle 
these cases. 

But under Chaffee's proposal 
the judiciary would be able to 
ask the Dean of Men to take a 
case. 

Selection of the revised judi- 
ciary would rest with a joint 
administration-student process, 
with control in the hands of the 
students, either in the Senate or 
through an election in the student 
body. 

[Women's Judiciary is selected 
in a poll of women students at 
present.] 

Open Meetings 

Chaffee also favors open judi- 
ciary hearings. "One of the foun- 
dations of the concept of democ- 
racy is public trials. Secrecy is 
star chamber tactics. 

"And if the present judiciary 
had any power they'd be a star 
chamber organization." 

In its failure to handle all cas- 
es involving men, Chaffee main- 
tains, it is operating unconstitu- 
tionally, for the student govern- 
ment constitution says: "The 
Men's Court of Justice tries all 
cases applying srtrictly to men." 
(Article IV, Section 2, paragraph 
b, subparagraph 2.)

Maroon Key Moves 

Robert Betts, the president of 
the Maroon Key, which is now 
the only honor society lacking a 
scholastic requirement, said last 
night that the members of the 
group had discussed the possibil- 
ity of an average requirement 
early in the school year. 

He said that although they 
have not chosen an average yet, 
there is no present member who 
has an average less than 1.5. 

Betts said Keogh's motion is 
"a good idea," and added that 
it is "only common sense." 

Keogh, who said that this "is- 
probably the biggest thing I've 
tried to do down there (at the 
sena<te)", said he thinks the pas- 
sage of the motion would be to 
the benefit of every student as 
well as every organization on 
campus. 

Scholafltics Most Important 

"We're all here to graduate," 
he said, declaring that scholas- 
tics are the most important as- 
pect of college life. 

Since the motion is a constitu- 
tional amendment, it must spend 
at least one week in committee 
before a final Senate vote. 

Keogh is chairman of the con- 
stitution committee, to which the 
motion will be referred if it does 
not meet strong opposition on the 
senate floor tomorrow. 

Lawrence Parrish, the senate 
president, said last night that he 
thought the idea a good one, al- 
though he thought the motion 
might well stand modification 
and clarification while in com- 
mittee. 

Parrish said ho f(>lt such a^•or-

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY. NOVEMBER 14, 1956 



AVERAGES 



The motion made by Mr. Keogh for an 
amendment to the constitution is an admir- 
able one. We have been in need of such a 
ruh'ng for a long time. 

This amendment would be an aid to the 
students and to the organizations them- 
selves. There are many students who are 
unable to budget their time. It is often the 
school work which suffers rather than the 
outside activity. The exclusion of member- 
ship is not from all organizations, but what 
are referred to as "major" campus activities. 
Under this grouping would fall WMUA, 
Collegian, and the other especially time-con- 
suming activities. 

The benefit to the organizations is also 
evident. Too often, the membership of vari- 
ous groups has found itself without a presi- 
dent after first semester. By setting a schol- 
astic standard for office holders, we are as- 
sured to a certain degree that our leaders 
will not be falling short of the mark. 

There has been much talk about the low 
intellectual standard at this university. Here 
is a definite move to combat this. 

Three of the Honor Societies now have a 
minimum scholastic requirement, and the 
fourth has been working on the same since 
September. These organizations are to be 
congratulated for their awareness. May we 
also cheer this resolution, which will give the 
same high standing to all of the campus or- 
ganizations.

MR. SPARKES 
ON MARRIAGE 

To the Editor: 

Now that I'm attending an in- 
stitution of, supposedly, intellect- 
uals, I hope that someone here 
can an.swer this question "Why 
do some college people adopt any 
means possible to get married?" 

I would say that this is espec- 
ially true of co-eds. They even 
trot off and get themselves pi*eg- 
nant so they can get hitched. 
There might be an excuse for id- 
iotic, imbecilic or moronic pri- 
mary or .secondary school kids. 
We can forgive them because 
they don't know any better. 

College is diflFerent. With very 
few exceptions, college students 
are of normal mental capacity. 
Most of us can't say that we 
don't know any better. 

Girls, why feel sorry for some 
football player who has lost his 
buttons from taking too many 
blows and not dishing out enough 
in return? After all, one can't 
have everything. He's got fame 
and a letter to wear on his sweat- 
er or jacket. 

(Editor's note: Thank yoit, Mr. 
SparJccs, for your continued 
faithful canitributions. 

The editor finds herself con- 
fused upon reading this letter, 
and finds it necessary to ask the 



class. 



Dan Dunwoodie 



Smarten up, fellows (including 
and especially girls). Let's show 
the world that college students 
have enough sense not to make 
an imprecation of marriage and 
thereby ruin one of the few 
worthy institutions that has come 
down through the centuries. 

After all, fellows and girls, 
one doesn't have to get married 
to live a normal and happy life. 
Co-eds, before you toll Daddy 
what "Joe College" did to you, 
stop and think. You were prob- 
ably more to blame than he. A 
"shotgun" wedding won't save 
your face. People can still count, 
you know. 

I know some pretty miserable 
co-eds that married the guy from 
college and wish the heck they 
hadn't. 

Wise up, fellows and girls. If 
you think college boys and girls 
are the only ones, think again. 
Find the real reason for mar- 
riage before you do anything.

Grad School Has Wide 
Scope; Spurs Faculty 

The Graduate School on this campus is compar- 
atively imknown to the majority of the student body, 
yet graduate courses were offered leading to a 
doctor of science in chemistry and botany as early 
as 1876. 

It was not until 1892 under President Goodell 
that courses for the degree of master of science 
were offered. This degree was first conferred in 
June, 1896. The degree of doctor of philosophy was 
first offered in 1897, but it was not vmtil 1902 that 
one was finally given. 

Many Degrees Offered 

The purpose of the Graduate School is to provide 
qualified students with proper gruidance in methods 
of advanced study and research. Students may earn 
degrees in the majority of the departments of the 
university. 

Courses are available to obtain degrees of doctor 
of philosophy, master of science, master of arts, 
master of landscape architecture, master of science 
in chemical engineering, master of .science in civil 
engineering, master of science in mechanical engi- 
neering, master of science in agricultural engineer- 
ing, master of arts in teaching, and master of busi- 
ness administration. 

The Graduate School was previously conducted 
under the direct administration of the President, 
but in 1908 the trustees made the school a separate 
unit due to the increasing demands of the advanced 
work. 

Council Appointed 

In 1950 the Grad School was reorganized. The 
Board of Trustees established a new position, Dean 
of the Graduate School, which is at present fulfilled 
by Mr. Woodside, head of the zoology department. 
The President also appointed a Graduate School 
Council representing all Schools and Divisions of 
the university. 

The Council acts as the legi.slative body for the 
school. It .sets up standards for admission, scholar- 
ship, curriculum, and degree requirements, subject 
to approval by the Board of Trustees. It acts on 
suggestions received from members of the graduate 
faculty, as well as on special requests from grad 
schools. Although much of its work is done by sub- 
committees, anything involving the Grad School 
policy is debated by the entire Council. 

One of the important reasons that the university 
is anxious to build up grad work where it is now 
offered, and to add it where it does not exist, is 
that research, WTnting. and other creative work by 
members of the faculty can be significantly stimu- 
lated by having graduate students in a department. 

Research and Teaching 

Graduate instruction is offered by qualified fac- 
ulty members from all branches of the university — 
Resident Instruction, Experiment Station, and Ex- 
tension and Control Services. It is worthwhile to 
note that the two fields of research and teaching 
are not separate as previous opinion may have it. 
This is illustrated by the fact that ex])eriment sta- 
tion people have helped in the teaching of grad stu- 
dents and that teachers have done research. 

In an article written for The Massachnsetts 
Alumnus Dean Woodside states that the Graduate 
School is dedicated to the ideal of the advancement 
of knowledge, through faculty and student research 
and other creative work. He believes that such 
work is the best method of developing intellectual 
humility, because, through it, the students learn 
how difficult it is to add to the sum of human knowl- 
edge.

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN. WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 14. 1956 



Brandeis Tops UMass; 
Allen Wins WW Award 

Behind a strong running and aerial attack, Brandeis 
University stopped a Redmen bid for a third consecutive 
victory. The Judges took over possession of the ball for the 
most part of the game and coasted to an easy 40-14 win 
over the Redmen. 

The mainstay for the Judges was their ace quarterback 
Jim Stehlin, who passed and ran the Redmen ragged for 
the better part of the afternoon. UMass failed to make a 
single first down in the first half, while the Judges poured 
on a series of scores. The score at the end of the half was 

33 to zip. 

UMass managed to salvage some prestige by digging m 
hard in the second half and pushing 14 points across the 
boards. Both UMass TD's were scored on passes to Ingram 
and Barous. Another tally by Brandeis, and the day's scor- 
ing had ended. 

Once again, every Redman played a heck of a game, 
and this week's Wellworth Award presentation wasn't 
easy to make. We considered carefully, however, and de- 
cided that center Bill "Buzz" Allen was our man. 

As far as we were concerned, Allen played one of his 
best games of the season. Most writers thought that Bill's 
bad leg would slow him up quite a bit this year, but this 
proved to be a fallacy ; Bill plays harder and more aggres- 
sive football than he has in previous yeai^. 

Allen proved to be a key man on both defense and of- 
fense for the Redmen. Twice during the progress of the 
game. Bill re-injured his bad leg, but both times he stayed 
out only long enough to rest the leg, and then he was right 
back in the middle of things. The phrase "in the middle of 
things" more or less sums up the afternoon for Bill, because 
that's exactly where he was practically all of the time. 

Bill's spirit and determination to win, though the odds 
were piled high against his team and against his leg holding 
out, displayed the type of athlete who is best qualified for 
the merits of the Wellworth Award. 

Congratulations to Bill "Buzz" Allen for his great game 
last Saturday and for being chosen as this week's Well- 
worth Award recipient. 



Basketball Notice 

There will be a meeting for 
basketball players on Thursday 
night at 7 p.m. in Room 10 in 
the Phys. Ed. Building. 



Frosh Whip Tufts 
3-1 In Final Game 

Sometimes a good offense is 
the best defense. At least it was 
so in Medford Friday, where the 
little Redmen soccer team, in 
their final game of the season, 
soundly whipped the Tufts frosh, 
3-1. 

Near Shutout For Captain 

While Dick Williams played a 
standout game at goal, his team- 
mates built up a 3-0 lead and 
were never threatened by t!ie 
slow charging little Jumbos. 

Williams almost shut out the 
Tufts hooters — his way of thank- 
ing his teammates for naming 
him captain minutes before the 
game began. Late in the last 
period, McClintock, Tufts for- 
ward, headed a teammate's re- 
bound into the goal at point- 
blank range for Tufts' only score. 

All Massachusetts 

It was only a matter of time 
when UMass would score. The 
offense constantly out-charged 
the Tufts forwards. Several shots 
by Redmen forwai-ds flew over 
the goal and they missed their 
specialty — a penalty kick by 
Nick Bazos, inside right. McClin- 
tock, then playing goal for Tufts, 
made a nice save on the shot. 

Finally, John Poignand, out- 
side right, booted his first goal 
of the day after forward George 
Bowman had knocked the ball 
loose from the Tufts goalie's 



UMass Ties Tufts 1-1; 
Ends Mediocre Season 

by BILL CROTTY 

Playing their last game of the season at Medford last Friday, 
the UMass soccer team tied Tufts 1-1 to end a very mediocre season. 

The game was rough and well-played, with UMass going all out 
in a try to end the season on a successful note. The first half proved 
more or less defensive for both clubs. The closest thing to a score 
came in the first quarter, when Webb Cutting was awarded a penalty 
kick. The goalie blocked the kick, but the baU fell only five feet in 
front of the goal. Cutting caught up with the ball, but, in his eageiv 
ness to score, he lifted it over the nets. 
After ten minutes had elapsed — 



in the second half. Tufts recorded 
the first talley of the game. 

With about ten seconds remain- 
ing in the quarter, the Redmen 
tied up the game and ended their 
scoring for the season. On a 

Old Tads Win 7-0 
Over VanMeter 

The Old Tads defeated Van 
Met^r A last night 7-0 to gain 
the final playoff with the inter-

For the Old Tads, this marked 
the end of another very success- 
ful season. It was the second sea- 
son in a row that the Old Tads 
were undefeated in intramural 

play. 

Van Meter A team were the 
winners of the inter-dorm league,

hands. The little Redmen led 1-0 
at the end of the half. 

In the third period the little 
Redmen wound up their scoring 
for the season. Bill Harris tallied 
with an assist from Gerry Stein- 
berg at two minutes. Ten min- 
utes later, Poignand, with assists 
from Bowman and Harris, scored 
his second goal to make the score 
3-0. Tufts then scored late in the 
fourth period. 

Good Defense 

The boys showed Coach Bums 
some defense, too. Besides goalie 
Williams, fullbacks Charlie Repe- 
ta, George Lust, and Dick Sco- 
field kept the Tufts forwards 
guessing. A late substitute, goal- 
ie Joe Henriques, made a nice 
save, too, on one of his rare ap- 
pearances during the season. 



scramble in the Tufts zone, the 
ball skirted across the mouth of 
the goal. The Tufts defenseman 
tried to clear it out, but Paul 
Mailman stopped the ball from 
going offside and fed Billy Burke, 
who slapped it home. This was 
Burke's fourth goal of the sea- 
son, tying him with Ben Daherty 
for first place honors. Daherty, 
who didn't start until Co-captain 
Lou McCarry broke his leg in 
the Amherst game, has been su- 
perb throughout the season. He 
proved to be one of the bulwarks 
of the team during the last half 
of the season. 

Tufts has had a pretty good 
season record and was billed as 
a spoiler. The Jumbos had upset 
victories over strong MIT and 
Wesleyan outfits. 

The Tufts game put the wraps 
on a rather mediocre season for 
the Redmen. Along with the 
Jumbo tie, the Briggsmen had 
fought to a draw with Coast 
Guard, WPI, and Bridgeport. 
They had lost, as was expected, 
to three powerhouses — Trinity, 
Amherst, and Williams. They had 
also been beaten by UConn, which 
gave the unofficial YanCon title 
to the Huskies. Their only victory 
was at the expense of Clark. 
Their season record stands 1-4-1. 

At the beginning of the sea- 
son, Coach Briggs prophesied a 
year of rebuilding. The team was 
green and inexperienced, consist- 
ing mainly of juniors and sopho- 
mores. At any rate, with Golas, 
Hawkins, Morrone, Cutting, Mail- 
man, Burke, Glocowski, Lind- 
quist, and Dube returning, Coach 
Briggs can say with some justi- 
fication, "Wait 'til next year."

Colleges Too Paternal, 
ACLU Study Charges 

(Reprinted From The New York Times) 



The American Civil Liberties 
Union has prepared a study en- 
titled "Academic Freedom and 
Civil Liberties of Students." 

Post-war emphasis on national 
security, the A.C.L.U. says, has 
resulted in an increasing exer- 
cise of paternalism over students 
by college authorities and gov- 
erning boards and that the gains 
to national security from such 
paternalism will prove largely il- 
lusory, while thp losses to free- 
dom and democracy are likely to 
be real and substantial. 

If students refrain from join- 
ing organizations and from other 
activities out of fear rather than 
out of conviction, the study adds, 
it may induce feelings of frustra- 
tion and reservations about free- 
dom. 

The study sets forth a number 
of guiding principles concerning 
student organizations. Among the 
more pertinent ax'e these: 

(1) Student government should 
be established at each college. In 
the election of such government, 
the electorate should consist of 
the entire student body. 

(2) Students should be free 
to organize and join associations 
for educational, political, social, 
religious, cultural and other law- 
ful purposes. 

(3) All student organisations 
may be required to register with 
the appropriate faculty student 
committee their names, purposes, 
by-laws, officers and activities, 
but organizations should not be 
required to file a list of members. 

(4) It should be the proper re- 
sponsibility of schools and col- 
leges to encourage students to 
meet, organize, participate and 
speak in groups xormed for po-

litical religious or social pur- 
poses. But the freedom of stu- 
dents' speech and assembly does 
not bar the college fi-om ac- 
quainting the students with the 
nature of the organizations and 
the causes that seek to enlist 
their support. 

(5) The college and school 
should avoid rigid and complete 
control of campus publications. 

(6) No disciplinary action 
should be taken against a student 
for engaging in off-campus ac- 
tivities such as political cam- 
paigning, picketing and partici- 
pating in public demonstrations, 
providing the student does not 
claim authority to speak in the 
name of the college. 

(7) The administration should 
exercise extreme care in making 
the student's campus record avail- 
able to the outside world. 

(8) No student should be ex- 
pelled or suffer other disciplin- 
ary action unless advised explic- 
itly of the charges against him 
and provided a full hearing to 
answer the charges.

Senate Meeting Hears Mather Disclose Future 
Plans, Sends Keogh Bill To Constitutional Committee 



Mather 
Solon 



Is In Favor Of 



Keogh's Motion 

Richard Keogh last night asked the Senate to refer his 
motion of a Constitutional amendment to restrict extra-cur- 
ricular activities by scholastic average requirements to the 
constitutional committee for further study. 

The committee will study the motion, and improve the 
form. It will then be presented to the Senate for action. 

The Senal;e also referred the following motions directly 
to the committees concerned: 

— 1. The service committee will report on the vending 
machines on campus. 

— 2. The investigation of the use of ID cards for next 
year. 

—3. 



The investigation of 
having receivers for WMUA 

installed in all the dorms. 

— 4, A report to be made on 
the general working conditions 
on campus. 

In regard to Keogh's motion, 
President Mather commented that 
he thought the idea a good one. 
Senate action on such a motion 
he stated would speed the results. 

During floor debate on the mo- 
tion, an amendment was asked of 
and passed by the Senate. The 
amendment will have the consti- 
tutional committee submit a 
weekly report on their progress. 

It was pointed out that the 
Senate could pull the motion out 
of committee if their study 
lagged.

President Reviews Past, 
Outlines Coming Changes 

President J. Paul Mather delivered his "State of the 
University" message to the Senate last night, discussing 
the developments of the past three years and outlining fu- 
ture plans of the University. 

He listed proposed expenditures at the University for 
1957 at $4,965,000. This sum is for the construction of spe- 
cialized schools and the purchase of furnishings and equip- 
ment. In regard to future plans, he predicted that the Uni- 
versity's goal of 10,000 students would be met by 1965. 

The objectives of the administration, he said, are not, 
however, limited only to material accomplishments. 

The passage of the Free- 
dom Bill has, he said, eased

Scholarship Subgroup Hits 
Policies^ Suggests Changes 

by JOHN CALLAHAN 

Criticisms and recommendations regarding the level of 
campus intellectual life were offered last night by six fac- 
ulty members and 21 students at a meeting of the scholar- 
ship Subcommittee of the Honors Committee. 

Donald Rogers, professor of Philosophy and chairman 
of the subcommittee led the discussion by the faculty-stu- 
dent group. 



Campus Queen Is Aged Woman 
For Role In Roister Bolster Play 



A vivacious 20 year old co-ed 
becomes a feeble 72 year old 
woman in a matter of minutes 
as Carol Bruinsma is converted 
to Rebecca Nurse by the Roister 
Doister make-up crew. 

Miss Bruinsma porti-ays Re- 
becca Nurse in the Roister Dois- 
ter fall production. The Crucible 
by Arthur Miller. The play is 
set in 17th century Salem during 
the witch trials. Rebecca Nurse 
is one of the matrons of the 
town. 

Make-Up Cr'*w Effective 

The problem of chanffing Miss 
Bruinsma from co-ed to matron 
was easily solved by the make- 
up crew under the direction of 
Henry Peirce of the speech de- 
partment, technical adviser to the 
Roister Doisters. 

The conversion, which takes al- 
most an hour, is made with the 
aid of rubber latex, to build up 
wrinkles, shadinj?, lininf? espec- 
ially around the eyes and mouth, 
and graying. 

Role A Challenge 

Miss Bruinsma regards the 
part of Rebecca Nurse as a chal- 
lenge. She feels that although it 
is a minor role as far as plot 
is concerned, it is an excellent 
opportunity for characterization. 

She enjoys dramatics and had

make-up to become a 72 year old woman for her role in "The 
Crucible." — Photo by Johnson 



some acting experience in high 
school. However, this is her first 
appearance in a RoLster Doister 
production. 

Mrs. Bruinsma Acts, Too 

Her mother shares her inter- 
<st in the theatre, and at the 
same time that Miss Bruinsma 
is portraying the 72 year old 
Rebecca Nurse here, Mrs. Bruins- 



ma will be playing the role of a 
22 year old girl in a play given 
by a community group in Worces- 
ter. 

The Ci'urihle, which is to be 
presented eaiiy in I»ec. promises 
to pniviile (M-rllf lit ( iitei-tain- 
ment and human (iiania, accord- 
ing to Frank Smith pFesidcnt of 
the RD's. 



Criticism was levelled at 
the general confusion sur- 
rounding the publicity re- 
garding intellectual events oc- 
curring on campus. The group rec- 
ommended replacement of the nu- 
merous bulletins, posters and 
news releases with one central 
and complete bulletin which an- 
nounces and fully describes the 
event. 

. Students also found fault with 
the teaching personnel and meth- 
ods and described the level of 
teaching as "inadequate". They 
were generally agreed that stu- 
dents should have more voice in 
the selections of teachers. The 
recommendations of the students 
would be offered on a "take it 
or leave it" basis. 

Turning to class schedules the 
group found the present system 
too mechanical. They recommend- 
ed more concentrated courses and 
the abolishment of the rigid Mon- 
day, Wednesday, Friday sched- 
ule. 

The subcommittee found some 
.serious omissions in the gen- 
eral curriculum. Notable among 
courses not offered they listed 
Greek, Oriental Studies and 
World Problems. Recommenda- 
tions were made for a eoonlin- 
ated |iro>rrani in which the cur- 
riculum committee would invite 
the .'♦tudents to make suggestions. 
ttie meeting was 
^ful in tli.it "some students 
a |) |i a r (> n 1 1 y interested 
enough in tlie problem to talk 
(('I'tititiin <l i>ti page 4) 



the problem of instructors 

and their salaries. 

"The biggest problem," he stat- 
ed, "was of this place turning 
into a 'boot camp' for educators." 

The University would lose 
promising teachers, he said, be- 
cause of higher salaries paid else- 
where. 

He also declared that plans are 
being made for the exchange of 
scientists and professors between 
the University of Hokkaido, in 
Sapporo, Japan, and the Univer- 
sity of Massachusetts. 

"This program as it develops," 
he said, "will . . . not only bring 
the University prestige and rec- 
ognition, but represents a prac- 
tical, educational, and spiritual 
contribution evidencing our re- 
sponsibility to the nation and the 
world as well as the local scene." 

He said the administration was 
also exploring locally the possi- 
bility of establishing a coopera- 
tive engineering branch under the 
supporting auspices of the Gen- 
eral Electric Company at Pitts- 
tield. 

President Mather, in conclud- 
ing, suggested that his remarks 
might be titled, "Univoisity is a 
Thing of Future". 

"I am sure that in the days 
ahead," he said, "each of you 
will do your best to make of this 
University a thing of future and 
that the universe ... in which 
We live will profit by such effort."

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 16, 1956 



I 



Judiciary Review Needed 

A few weeks ago the editorial column of 
the Collegian listed a nine point program 
which, to us, embodied the most vital 
changes, projects and problems that need 
dealing with this year bj^ the Student Senate. 

High on the list was the reviewing and 
revamping of the two student judiciary- 
bodies. This particular item elicited com- 
ment and sneers from som_e noteworthy 
people — especially the Chief Justice of Men's 
Judiciary. Others, notably the new Chair- 
man of Men's Affairs, merely passed it off 
as a problem of no real vital importance. 

Again the issue has been brought to the 
fore by a Collegian news story reporting 
criticism and proposals from a former chair- 
man of the Men's Affairs Committee. 

A letter from alumnus Joseph Larson, 
who, as Men's Affairs Chairman for most 
of last year, undertook a review of the ju- 
dicial body, brings to light more of the facts. 

Although the present chief justice in- 
sists that the situation is a perfectly accept- 
able one as it now stands and although he 
says that no one really has any facts to base 
criticism on, we believe that there is a defi- 
nite need for action in this area — but not 
without first getting the facts. Last year's 
joint meetings between the Men's Affairs 
Committee and the judiciary were not, we 
believe, as effective as Mr. Larson would 
have us think. However, he is right in say- 
ing that there was some ground work laid. 
At least, everyone admitted then that the 
situation deserved attention. 

We suggest that the Dean of Men, at 
whose pleasure the power of the justices 
rests, be invited to a meeting to discuss the 
problem, but first of all, the admission must 
be made that there is a problem. The im- 
potence and indefinite purposes of the group 
must be rectified. 

Seen in the University Calendar : Men's 
Judiciary, SECRET HEARINGS, OC Sem, 7 p.m. 

Seniors Still Unorganized 

A small handful of seniors turned out 
yesterday morning for the second meeting 
of the class of 1957 of the year. The first, a 
few weeks ago, had only a few more people 
than were present yesterday for the all im- 
portant organizational activities for senior 
class projects. 

Poor publicity, asserted President Ma- 
honey, was probably the reason. However, 
many seniors that we talked to were aware 
of the meeting and did not attend. Because 
of this lack of cooperation and interest, the 
election of committee chairman who will 
steer the vital functions of the senior class 
from now until June was postponed until 
after Thanksgiving. 

We must call upon the seniors, who, al- 
though they may be unable to spare an hour 
for an important meeting, will perhaps be 
interested in how more than $3500 of their 
money will be spent. 

The class gift must be decided upon soon 
and as yet only four suggestions have been 
received. One of them, a gift of a vitally 
needed parking lot to meet an emergency 
which could result in a completely unreason- 
able student car ban, needs immediate de- 
cisive action if it is the gift choice of the 
seniors. 

Suggestions for gifts should be sent or 
phoned imnu diatrh/ to class treasurer Fran 
Driscoll, Mills House.

AMHERST POET 

Robert Francis 
Here Tuesday 

by EVELYN COHEN 

Utilike the average i>oet, Robert Francis, distin- 
guished contemporary American poet, is first a 
poet and next a college instructor. Years ago, he 
gave up the security of being an educator and be- 
came a writer and poet exclusively. 

Pennsylvania-boin Francis has lived almost his 
entire life in the Bay State and since his graduation 
from Hai-vard he has lived in Amherst. He has 
taught courses in creative writing and poetry at 
the University of Massachusetts and at Mount Hol- 
yoke College. He also plays and has taught the 
violin. 

Lives A Walden Life 
At pi'esent, Robert Francis, unmarried, lives 
alone in Cushman Village, North Amherst. He 
reads Thoreau and practice.? him. In his self-de- 
signed home, he lives the Walden type of life. He 
calls his abode Fort Juniper. 

Francis ranks among the to}) poets of Amherst 
— Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Walker Gibson, 
and David Morton. 

Nature Poet 
His poetry is deceptively easy — after thought it 
acquires great complexity. He is considered a tra- 
ditional rather than a modernistic poet. He is a 
careful writer, uses eye to eye detail, and practices 
exact diction. Essentially, he is a nature poet and 
his wa-iting shows a distinctive New England flavor. 
Although his style is definitely his own, it smacks 
of a combination of Robert Frost and Henry David 
Thoreau, His four books of poetry are among his 
contributions to the world of literature. They are: 
Stand With Me Here, The Sound I LiKt^-ned For, 
and Valhalla and Oth^r Poema. He also has pub- 
lished a novel, We Fly Away. 

Gives Readings in Amherst 
Leading magazines and journals constantly pub- 
lish his i)oems. They have aypeared in the New 
Yorker, Yale and Virginia Quarterly Reviews. He 
also writes articles and essays which have appeared 
in newspapers as prominent as the Christian Science 
Monitor. 

Robert Francis often gives readings in Amherst 
and has si>oken on campus. 

Conies To Campus Tuesday 
University students and faculty will have an 
opportunity to hear this fascinating gentleman on 
Tuesday, Nov. 20 when he will speak in the Poetry 
Room of Goodell Library at an open meeting of the 
Literary Society. He will commence reading his 
latest published poems at 8 p.m. 

He has recently been honored by being selected 
by critic W. H. Auden to appear in his anthology 
of American poets, one of the best collections of 
its type. 

Robert Francis has always been closely associ- 
ated with both the English Department and the 
English majors here on campus and is a close as- 
sociate of distinguished authors outside of Amherst. 
Mr. Rob«it Francis moves in a modest way in 
distinctive circles.

14 REDMEN PLAY FINAL 
UM FOOTBALL TOMORROW 

by SUE HARRINGTON 

The last game of the 1956 football season will 
be played tomorrow. Even if the Redmen are vic- 
torious, there will be an element of sadness connect- 
ed with the gnme for 14 members of the team will 
be playing their last game for the university. 

At last report, nine of the 14 seniors are expect- 
ed to start — or perhaps more impressive, nine of 
the 11 starters will be seniors. Coach O'Rourke no 
doubt will have difficulty finding replacements for 
these men next year. 

Among the nine is William "Buzz" Allen, the 
Redmen center. Buzz is a transfer from Middlcbury. 
As a sophomore he played end, but since his con- 
version to center, he has been invaluable to UMass 
in his junior and senior years. 

Fullback Roger Barous has the enviable distinc- 
tion of being the only Umie to ever score against 
Harvard. He and co-captain Jim Dolan both hail 
from Andnver, and the two have been teammates 
sime their sophomore year in high school. 

The "Big Surj>rise" of the year, according to 
manager Bob Belts has been halfback John Cieri. 
He graduated fr<im warming the bench last year to 
full-tiin(- action this fall. 

Fitchhurg's Dave Ingram, a chi-n istry major, is 
the team's oihvv m-captain. This end is considered 
by many as the "work-hor^e" of the team. 

Nn( SM many year.'? ago it was predicted that tac- 
kle .Art Miller would never walk again, let alone 
pl.iy fo<.il)alI, as a result of shrapnel wounds suf- 
fered (luring the Korean war. For his steady per- 
fnmianrc tliis year, we think Mr. Miller deserves the 
t tlr of Mr. Com. 'back.

Page one of the Nov. 14th is- 
sue of the Collegian contained 
an attack upon the Men's Judic- 
iary. . . . Much choice ^pace of the 
page was devoted to the subject. 

The blindness of this rash at- 
tack and the fact that any space 
at all was devoted to it urged 
me to pick up my retired pen 
and shine a little light on the 
truth regarding Men's Affairs, 
Men's Judiciary and Mr. Chaffee. 

I became Chairman of Men's 
Affairs directly after Mr, Chaf- 
fee left the university part way 
through last semester. From that 
date the main business of Men's 
Affairs was the problem of 
stiengthening Men's Judiciary, 
Joint meetings of our committee 
and Men's Judiciary were held 
and by the end of the school year 
enough had been accomplished to 
set a program of review and re- 
vision into motion Mr. Chaf- 
fee was not present to benefit 
from tins work and perhaps he 
is really unqualified to speak on 
the problem. 

The men students and their 
representatives in the senate have 
held in general high regard the 
persons who have been selected 
for Men's Judiciary, This speaks 
well for the selection system now 
used, as opposed to a "popularity 
contest" often suggested and now 
proposed again. 

To back up his claim of "poor 
selection," Mr. Chaffee alluded 
to personal attacks, campaign 
speeches, fraternity loyalties, and 
snap judgments. This is indeed 



a good attempt at old-time "muck 
raking," He even vaguely refers 
to an unnamed sophomore who 
was "slandered" out of conten- 
tion and charges that voting is 
often along fraternity lines. He 
of course cannot name the sopho- 
more because during Mr. Chaf- 
fee's short lived Senate career 
thei-e was no such incident. Since 
voting in the committee is by 
secret ballot, and only totals are 
known, this rash student must 
have secured his information 
about votes by . . . looking over 
everyone's shoulder at the same 
time. 

The only true point the attack 
made was the fact that the Ju- 
diciary needs strengthening. This 
appearance of glimmering truth 
may have been accidental on 
Chaffee's part. However, if the 
Men's Affairs Committee follows 
up the ground work that was 
laid last year . . . positive pro- 
gress is possible in this line. 

In total, these charges, based 
on little knowledge and less good 
taste, strike out wildly at Men's 
Affairs, Judiciary and the seg- 
ment of the administration that 
deals with judicial problems. It 
might seem that the author feels 
a great injustice has been done 
him somewhere along the line. 

One question remains . . . How- 
did worthy news reporting arrive 
at such a low ebb as to permit 
page one, center, to achieve this 
latest unsavory glow?

SPARKES Sparks Sparks 

{Editor's Note—Lettertiriter Lawrence G. Sparkes, a Stockbridge student 
living in 215 Middlesex House, has elicited voluminous irate epistles from many 
other students. The Collegian cannot, of course, print all of the answers in 
TOTO but below appear significant phrases from a number of these objecting 
orators.) 

... I ask the question: who is this personality that thinks he is 
qualified, let alone capable, of being a fair judge of college life, etc.? 
I myself assume that Mr. Sparkes has attended many institutions of 
higher learning, so that he presents to us, the ignorant student body, 
a perfect picture of college life and how low the university ranks 
when Compared to others. 

I am thoroughly disgusted with these samples of misguided con- 
ception. I sincerely hope that Mr. Sparkes will soon see just what an 
imbecilic light these letters tend to put him in, and that the rest of 
the student body will take pity on him, and not judge him too harshly. 
As a la.st pa.ssing thought. I ask: if you don't like it here, Mr. Sparkes, 
why don't you leave. Petcr Munroe 

You ask, "Why do some college people adopt any means possible 
to get married?" This question has inspired me to compose retalia- 
tion with regards to this, and other matters. 

Firstly, people get married because they want to. Why they want 
to is their, and only their, concern. No one is required" to explain 
himself to any supercilious authority the reasons for his behaviour. 

Secondly, people (including me) wear bermudas because they 
are cool, comfortable, allow an ease of movements which is impos- 
sible with other attire, and they help to keep Uie pressing and clean- 
ing bills low. 

Thirdly, since you have such honorable aspirations, may I sug- 
gest that you do your bit in helping to keep the Collegian at a col- 
lege level? I, for one, am ashamed to send some issues home. To 
my familiarity, the vast majority of students at U. of M. (including 
the coeds) are, in essence, both honorable and decent. 

Lastly, I ask, do you actually think that all coeds are as pro- 
miscuous and ill-bred as your articles depict? 

William Cogdan 
RE Mr. Sparkes latest epi.stle. The "Ilave-Nots" are alwayg 
the ones who complain. jj^ ^^ j^o^.g 

And I would a.'^k at this time the reason for the present crusade 
being carrieti on by the good Mr. Sparkes. I have been here for four 
years now, and find no real fault with the way people on campus 
dress. I have yet to see a mass migration of coeds leaving school be- 
cau.se of "embarrassing circumstances."

TEP Whips Tads 22-12. 
Faces Theta Chi Of UNH 
Tonight For Mural Title 



The previously unbeaten Old 
Tads finally ran out of gas 
Wednesday night as they fell 
prey to TEP, the frateraity 
champs, by a score of 22-12. TEP, 
sparked by Skippy Elman and 
Maxie Reinstein, h?(c' to come 
from behind to overcome a 12-7 
deficit. 

It was the old story of youth 
and speed against age and ex- 
perience. The game was a real 
battle till TEP wrapped it up in 
the last quarter with a touchdown 
and a safety. 

Anderson w^as outstanding for 
the losers as he scored both TD's. 
Tweeds McClellan, Bob Scales, 
Stoner, and The Egg ('06) in 
playing their last game, bowed 
out like true champions. It is 
hoped that next year, someone, 
somewhere will be around to fill 
their sneakers. 

TEP will be a fine representa- 
tive from UMieland in tonight's 
tussle with the U.N.H. champs, 
Theta Chi. U.N.H. may be hamp- 
ered by a diminished squad as 
mural football at Now Hampshire 
is played with nine men. Both 
teams will wear regular varsity 
uniforms with the pads removed. 
Rumor has it that the imported 
opposition will arrive with a 



squad of twenty-five players plus 
a large contingent of partisan 
fans. 

TEP coach Paul Bennet has his 
team primed for tonight's con- 
test. The margin of victory could 
be the football savvy of quarter- 
back Skippy Elman. Maxie Rein- 
stein can snag just about any- 
thing from his end position, while 
Bobby Meyers will be a constant 
breakaway threat. 

Game time is 6:30. It promises 
to be a good show, so why not 
drop down and see some real 
championship football. 

Coach Bennet has released the 
TEP lineups. They are as follows:

14 Seniors End Careers 



Fourteen UMass seniors will 
bid a fond farewell to college 
football tomorrow when the 
Uniies meet New Hampshire. As 
the 1956 season conies to a close, 
Coach O'Rourke is well aware of 
the hard time he'll have replac- 
ing the seven backs and seven 
lint' men who will graduate in 
June. The Redmen will lose their 
top seven ball carriers. Whalen, 
Wright, Barous, and Mellen, one 
of the best small college back- 
fields in New Engand, will start 
their final game against the 
Wildcats. If last week's leg in- 
jury to Wright keeps him out, 
John Cieri will fill in at halfback 
slot. 

Up front, six regulars are de- 
parting, including Co-captains 



Jim Dolan and Dave Ingram. In- 
gram, one of the best ends in 
Western Mass. is the team's best 
pass receiver catching 18 thi-ows 
for 274 yards and three scores. 
Dolan is an outstanding guard 
and was picked on the All New 
England team a year ago. Find- 
ing replacements for these sen- 




DAVE INGRAM 



JIM DOLAN 



iors will be a difficult task. 

Quarterback Jack Noble will 
play his final game as will Dick 
Berquist, who limped through the 
season with a sprained ankle 
which never quite healed. Util- 
ity man Ken MacRae, who plays 
center and end with equal ease 
and brilliant center Bill Allen 
will also play their last game. 
Art Miller, 225 pound tackle, 
who has averaged over fifty min- 
utes per game will be joined 
this June by reserve guard Bob 
Sampson. 

These seniors have never beat- 
en New Hampshire and will at- 
tempt to make their final meet- 
ing with the Wildcats a trium- 
phant farewell to football.

UNH Rules As Seven Point Favorites 



The Redmen go on their last 
scalp hunt of the season tomor- 
row afternoon at Alumni Field. 
The quarry will be the ferocious 
UNH Wildcat. 

For 14 of the Redmen the con- 
test will be the last milestone in 
their college careers. The entire 
starting backfield and three of 
the top-line backfield reserves 
take their last bows, and add 
to this list four starting linemen, 
including the co-captains, plus 



three ace subs and you have quite 
an imposing cast in their final 
performance. 

This week the Redmen again 
go into the fray as a definite 
underdog. The Wildcats will field 
a potent crew, and with the loss 
of Dick Wright the UMass hopes 
are dealt yet another blow. 
Some proenosticators are giving 
UNH as much as a 20 point 
edge over the Redmen. but even

ing offensive and defensive ball 
all season. The star halfback has 
the distinction of making the 
longest run of the year and of 
picking up more yardage than 
anyone else of the squad. 

At quarterback is Tom Whal- 
en, a local boy from Springfield. 
Tom is noted for his passing and 
in recent games the combination 
of Whalen and Ingram has fig- 
ured in many key Redmen plays. 

There is still a question as to 
whether Dick Wright, another 
star halfback, will start in Sat- 
urday's game. He was injured in 
the Brandeis game last week. 
This is ironical because it was 
against this same team last year 
that Did' acquired his trick knee 
which has plagued him through- 
out the season. Like Tom Whalen, 
Wright's best game was the B.U. 
contest, for which the entire team 
won the Wellworth Award. 

Other seniors who -wnll see their 
last action for UMass are Dick 
Bergquist, John Noble, Ken Mac- 
Rae, Bob Sampson, and Frank 
Spriggs.

The freshmen football team 
winds up its season tomorrow 
morning at 10 a.m. on Alumni 
field against the New Hampshire 
fi-osh. 

The Little Redmen lost their 
opener to Cheshire Academy over 
the fateful homecoming weekend, 
but bounced back to rout 
Worcester Academy and Spring- 
field College. A main factor in 
their success story has been their 
huge line which averages 205 
pounds. 

The frosh have been without 
two of their outstanding half- 
backs most of the season as Billy 
Reynolds and John Murphy have 
fallen to the injury jinx. Murphy 
has been out all season, while 
Reynolds, who was very impres- 
sive in pre-season workouts, sxrf- 
fered three cracked ribs on the 
opening kickoflP against Cheshire, 
and then received a badly brok- 
en ankle just after his return to 
the lineup. Tom Brown replaced 
Reynolds, and the rugged grid- 
ster from Boston Latin has tal- 
lied three touchdowns since 
breaking into the lineup. 
Armand Sabouin has been great 
all season, and hit his peak 
against Springfield as he un- 
leashed some masterpieces of run- 
ning, in scoring on a 60 yard 
jaunt and set up two other scores 
on runs of 40 yards. Jim Shay 
has done a fine job of quarter- 
backing while Roger Kindred has 
bulled his way for much yardage. 
Pete Eastman was impressive 
against Springfield, and should 
see considerable action tomorrow. 
Leading the way for the backs 
has been the hefty line. "The 
Animals" completely bottled up

Students Plan Program 
For Hungarian Relief 



A group of students met with Paul Gagnon of the his- 
tory department Friday, to lay plans for a Hungarian re- 
lief drive. 

The university students will co-operate with the Am- 
herst branch of the American Friends Service Committee 
in response to an urgent appeal for more clothing for over- 
seas relief. 

The campus drive will begin after the Thanksgiving 
vacation. The drive committee requests that students bring 
back any unwanted articles of clothing. Boxes will be 
placed at central locations on campus. 

The executive committee, under the chairmanship of 
Doris Rathbun, includes Charles Martin, Robert Meyers, 
Robert Larson, and Marion Haggerty. 

There will be a general meeting today at 4 p.m. All 
interested students are invited to attend. The committee 
hopes to engage a speaker in the near future. 



Art Exhibit 
Shown At 
Mem Hall 

A graphic arts collection rep- 
resenting work of a wide range 
of Western artists went on ex- 
hibit last week. Works of Jap- 
anese and other non-Western ar- 
tists are also displayed. 

The exhibit, sponsored by the 
Fine Arts Council and the Stu- 
dent Union Art (;omn>ittee, will 
be shown until Friday, Nov. 30 
at Mem Hall from 9 a.m. to 8 
p.m. 

The Travelling Print Collec- 
tion, including etchings, engrav- 
ings, mezzotints, and other 
printed pictures, is a small part 
of the Bowdoin College Walker 
art collection. A second group of 
prints will be shown at the uni- 
versity later in the year. 

The period covered in the pres- 
ent exhibition ranges from mid- 
18th century to the present, with 
American scenes such as "Brook- 
lyn Bridge at Night" and "Wash- 
ington's Reception by the La- 
dies", as well as Japanese and 
EiM'opean subjects. 



Third Member To Resign 
From Staff This Semester 

by ERNEST PALUCA 

Robert J. McCartney, Director of Publications and 
News, has resigned to accept a position at the University 
of Maryland, it was announced today. 

McCartney, whose resignation becomes effective No- 
vember 30, stated Friday the new position at Maryland 
promises a "more challenging job." 

With this resignation, McCartney becomes the third 
member of the university staff to announce his resignation 
this semester. Walter Johnson, Dining Commons Director, 
resigned to take a new position at RPI. Robert Morrissey, 
Placement Officer for Men, submitted his resignation but 

recently withdrew it again. 

Will Develop Speaker Bureau 

"In cooperation with President 
Wilson H. Elkins," McCartney 
said, "I will be developing a 
Speaker Bureau, and possibly 
a television station." 

In leaving his present position 
McCartney expressed himself 
as being "encouraged" by the de- 
velopment that has taken place 
in the last three years. "We 
have made a healthy start to- 
wards a public relations bureau 
that is worthy of this university," 
he said. 

When McCartney first started 
here nine years ago, the ofiice 
consisted of a one man news ser- 
vice.

Ope 
Appi 




Two Menotti operas, presented 
by the Amherst Community Op- 
era, were well-received over the 
weekend. 

Mi-s. Dorothy Feldman starred 
in a farce tragedy entitled: 
Anu'lla Goen to the Ball. The op- 
era told of a woman who had an 
urgent desire to attend a society 
ball. 

After the disposing of her hus- 
band and her lover, Amelia fin- 
ally realizes her desire and is 
escorted to the ball by a police- 
man. 

John Sroka gave a tiTic [wv- 
formanco as the young crippled 
boy in Anuilil and the Niijht 
Visitor.^. The opera told the story 
of the youth's miraculous cure 
and llu- gift of his crutch in 
thanksgiving to the Christ Child. 

The pei-formances were given 
Friday and Saturday and Sunday 
evenings.

"In 1953 we took cliarge of 
publications and have attempted 
to give the university a new 
look," said McCartney. He added 
that he has tried to bring about 
a uniformity anionic the univer- 
sity's publications, 

McCartney expressed the feel- 
ing that both he and his family 
"regret leaving" Amherst. They 
may retain their residence in Am-

plans are fairly vague." 

Regret Leaving Amherst 

McCartney said that he would 
miss the many friends he has 
made both among the citizens 
of .Amherst and the university 
people. 

McCartney graduated from the

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1956 



Qlljf ilafiiarljuaftiB ((l0Urgtait readers write 



A Matter Of Conscience 

It is not often that the Student Senate 
has to worry about its conscience. Not that 
the senators are dishonorable people, for 
they are on the whole public-spirited states- 
men. But their decision on Mr. Richard 
Keogh's motion to limit participation in ex- 
tra-curricular activities to students with cer- 
tain requisite averages is liable to hinge on 
their desires to remain in the Senate. 

For, it turns out, many of the senators 
would be affected should the Keogh bill be 
passed, and they would not be able to re- 
sume their seats next fall when the pro- 
posed constitutional revision would become 
operative. Knowing this, several senators 
will undoubtedly oppose the measure. Some 
of them will be powerful senators. Backers 
of the bill have said, for instance, that Mr. 
Alan Christenson will work to secure the 
necessary' one-third plus one to defeat the 
bill. (It is a constituional amendment and 
requires two-thirds approval for passage.) 

Mr. Christenson has been a devoted Sen- 
ate member. He has poured himself into 
activities and committees — notably Board- 
ing Halls and Student Union — ^with spirit 
and devotion, and for this he deserves our 
praise. 

Fully do we give it, but we are unhappy 
to learn that he does not favor the bill. It 
is said by the bill's backers that Mr. Chris- 
tenson opposes it because he would be af- 
fected by it, that he would not, should the 
measure be approved, be allowed to continue 
in the Senate next September. 

But that is precisely the point of the bill. 
In his devotion to matters of state Mr. Chris- 
tenson has let slip matters of scholastics. 
The bill is designed to prevent that on the 
assumption that a university is fundamen- 
tally a place for education. All else is sub- 
sidiary — even statesmanlike committee work 
on the Student Union. 

Let no one misunderstand us. We do not 
endorse Mr. Keogh's motion with a blanket. 
We think it has weaknesses, possible inequal- 
ities. We think it is imprecise, could not, in 
its present form, be administered efficiently, 
and might create inequities for some groups. 
We think it ignores or includes too easily 
and with little thought the special problem 
of athletics. 

We think the motion needs reworking. 
But the basic idea is a good one that will 
eventually be effected, if not by students 
then by the administration. Opposition to 
it now out of highly personal and selfish mo- 
tives will be a slap in the face to the Senate 
and the student body. 



Further Free Society, 
Author Tells Sparkes 

To the Editor: 

Most of us are by now familiar with the name of Sparkes and 
we have all heard much criticism pro and con as to his viewpoints. 
I, for one, don't feel as Mr. Sparkes does that the morals of our stu- 
dents are generally bad nor do I see anything wrong with bermudas 
. . . Some of the girls are quite attractive in their brief attire al- 
though some leave much to be desired. But that is certainly their 
business and not mine nor Mr. Sparkes'. 

As for campus pregnancies, I for one have been less observant 
than Mr. Sparkes, and if there are such, I certainly hope that society 
doesn't penalize a girl for such an error when it's so obvious that the 
problem lies not with the girl nor the boy, but with the society which 
causes our youth to lack the ability to sacrifice immediate pleasure 
for a more distant gratification. It doesn't seem proper to condemn 
a youth for society's wrongs. 

Mr. Sparkes is certainly to be commended for complimenting our 
university as he so unknowingly does by just writing his opinions to 
our campus press. That act alone tells me that Mr. Sparkes feels free 
to express himself and that is enough to make up for such insignifi- 
cant problems which he sees such as bermudas or an occasional un- 
fortunate lapse in self control on the part of some poor girl. 

Condemning such things never cures the problem as modem psy- 
chology so clearly shows, so if Mr. Sparkes would channel his praise- 
worthy moral indignation into a battle against, say, intolerance, in- 
tellectual dishonesty, or wage a war against disrespect for other peo- 
ple's rights, e.g. co-eds' freedom to dress as they think best, then I 
should certainly join Mr. Sparkes . . .

Group Charges Snack Bar 
Inept During Holiday Periods 

To the Editor: 

Since our stay here at the University of Massa- 
chusetts, we have read several criticisms of the 
Commons in the Collegian. Now we wish to pile 
some mo»-e wood on the fire. We are currently tak- 
ing a short course at the university. Frequently, 
we have classes on holidays. Over the holidays and 
for weekends, certain hours have been announced 
for the snack bar, . . 

During the last holiday period, for example, the 
Commons announced the snack bar would be open 
at 10 a.m. On both days, however, we have gone to 
the Commons for breakfast only to find it was not 
open; furthermore, it would not be open for at least 
45 more minutes (so we were informed). Why an- 
nounce certain hours, when the Commons has failed 
to open at these hours? For a university such as 
this, with such a tremendous expansion program, 
we are receiving a poor impression. Quite a few 
students stay over on the holidays, too. Where will 
they eat? What does the student body think of a 
university when no provisions, or faulty provisions, 
are made for feeding it. 

Those of us who were willing to go to town after 
hours found that most of the restaurnats wez-e al- 
finding the Commons not open at the announced 
so closed . . . 



Yours for a great university which the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts has the potentiality of be- 
ing in the future. 



There are some things that can't be measured in dollars and 
cents. Nature is one of them. No amount of money under the sun 
can make a tree, a flower, or even a blade of grass. Man can dig a 
hole and fill it full of water. He can dig a ditch and do the same 
things. He can call them a pond and a stream. That's all he can do. 
No matter how hard he tries, he just can't put natural beauty into 
and around them. They'll look like Boston's Swan Pond or that arti- 
ficial stream that's called Los Angeles River. 

Why am I writing this? It's because I see the "handwriting on 

the wall." Already the first step has been taken to shove nature aside 

in place of progre.ss here on campus. 

I write for our campus pond and stream. Did part of the stream ^J^/> //»/•/>(» 
have to be covered over? Was it because of the location of the Stu- Oftf^f-C^/f f^O • • • • 

dent Union Building ? If so, why did the building have to be placed in 
that spot in the first place? Surely, we have plenty of room else- 
where. Such action makes me wonder what the next step will be. Will 
it be to drain the campus pond for the next structure ? . . . 

Some have said the stream has a rather unpleasant stench. They 
would that it be eliminated for this reason . . . Why not find out the 
causes of the odor and eliminate them ? . . , Would you that all lakes 
and streams that smell be done away with? Why not cut down all 
the vegetation in the forests in order that there be no more danger 
of forest fires ? . . .

Aid For Hungarians 

A small group of students under the able 
direction of Paul Gagnon of the history de- 
partment have joined to help the suffering 
rebels in Hungary. In planning the relief 
drive these people hope to be of some assis- 
tance in relieving these battle torn and sub- 
jected people whose hope for freedom has 
been snuffed out by the iron heel of the 
Soviet. The curtain has once again clanged 
down along the border of Hungary, but ref- 
uges still manage to creep under to get away 
from the Russian dominance. 

It is the purpose of this university group 
and the many like it throughout our country 
to supply needed clothing to these refuges 
and to those people behind the curtain (if 
possibl(>). How (\isily we can do this. By 
coiitj'ibuting (lotliing we can do so much to 
relieve the snifciing of these b"ive people. 

We hope that all students will return to 
ciimpus after Thanksgiving armed v.ilh the 
only weapons we can use to help the Hun- 
garians — clothing. 



As far as the marring of our stream's beauty goes, the damage 
has been done. Somewhere a clause should be struck making it a law 
that what remains of the campus stream and pond be untouched to 
be enjoyed by all, ourselves and our posterity.

TEP Tipped By TC 27-26 
In Mural Bowl Game 



by JOHN COWAN 



Redmen Clawed 
In Final Clash 



A single point was the margin 
of victory Friday night as TEP, 
th€ UMie intiamural champs, 
dropped the decision to Theta 
Chi of New Hampshire 27-26 in 
the fust of tile annual Yankee 
Conference Day intramural con- 
tests. A crowd of 450 fans, which 
lined both sides of the field, wit- 
nessed some of the best intra- 
mural football seen in these parts 
in many moons. 

TEP received the first kickoff, 
but went nowhere on a series of 
running plays. Theta Chi then 
took possession and whipped the 
ball over the goal stripe after 
Dnly three carries. 

TEP again received the kick. 
A pass to Maxie Reinstein was 
intercepted on the one yard line. 
The UNH runner ducked would- 
be tacklers and scooted 49 yards 
ap the sideline for the second 
UNH score. The quarter ended 



with the visitors holding a com- 
manding 14-0 lead. 

TEP finally broke the goose 
Q^f^ trail with an Elman to 
Becker pass. It was 21-6 at half- 

t liVif. 

TEP finally opened up with a 
series of unbeatable plays that 
led to a TD by Elman on an end 
around, and an Elman to Rein- 
stein pass for the second score. 
A second Elman to Reinstein toss 
was good for the point. This left 
the UMies on the short end of a 
close 21-20 count. 

The fourth quarter provided 
much excitement for the specta- 
tors. TEP bouiiced into the lead 
for the first time on an Elman 
to Becker aerial. The Wildcats, 
not to be denied the victory, 
fought back like their varsity 
brothers; and pumped across an- 
other tally with three minutes 
remaining. 



By WUdcats 28-7 
Of '56 Campaign 

by TED RAYMOND 

The Redmen came to the end of another long trail Saturday afternoon as they were 
fiercely clawed by the UNH Wildcats 28-7 before a crowd of about 8,000. 

UNH opened the scoring midway through the first period when a Trouville to South- 
wick aerial went to paydirt from the UMass 35 yard stripe. Trouville added the extra 
point to make it 7-0. The Redmen controlled the ball during the greater part of this per- 
iod but couldn't get a scoring drive rolling. 

In the early moments of the second stanza the Redmen initiated a drive that looked 
like it was going all the way, but after lugging the ball all the way from their own 18 
yard marker down to the Wildcat 22, they ran out of gas and UNH took over. That was 

the deepest penetration by

The UMass freshmen foot- 
ball was edged by New Hamp- 
shire Saturday, 14-12, by means 
of a second period safety. 

The first UMie touchdown was 
set up by a bad pass from cen- 
ter on a punt, which gave the 
Little Redmen the ball on the 
UNH 11. From there, Sabourin 
and Tom Campbell carried to the 
four from which point, Sabourin 
took a pitchout from Jim Shay 
and scooted into the end zone. 
Here, New Hampshire started a 
drive to the UMass 15, which 
was interrupted when Dick Hes- 
lin recovered a fumble. UMass 
could not move the ball, however, 
and Shay was forced to punt. 
Shay could not handle the snap 
back from center and was snowed 
under for a safety. 



New Hampshire's next score 
was set up on a 26 yard pass 
play from Jim MacNevin to full- 
hack Paul Carignan which 
brought the ball to the one. Mac- 
Nevin sneaked over for the score. 

Linebacker Magee put UMass 
into the lead when he intercepted 
a flat pass and raced 35 yards 
to paydirt. 

UNH scored the winning 
touchdown five seconds before 
the close of the half on a Mac- 
Nevin to Fran Frasier aerial. 

UMass passed up three golden 
chances to win the game in the 
fourth quarter. A blocked punt 
by Bob Melia, and Ralph Malon- 
ey's fumble recovery twice gave 
them the ball deep in UNH ter- 
ritory.

UNH Harriers Win 26-31 
Over Redmen Runners 

by JOHN McATEER 

A disappointing cross country season was brought to 
an end Saturday afternoon as the Redmen harriers lost to 
a weaker UNH outfit 36-31. 

This brought the Redmen's season record to 3 wins, 
3 losses, third place in the YanCon tourney, and an incom- 
plete in the New Englands.

Actually, disappointment did- 
n't inter the picture until the 
last two meets. Until then the 
Redmi-n liad lost oiily to Harvard 
and UConn, two definitely strong- 
er clubs. 

Then they did surprisingly 
well to finish third in the Yankee

and UConn, both of whom re-

either outfit during the re- 
mainder of the half. 

The Redmen opened the third 
period with an onside kick that 
they recovered themselves on the 
Wildcat 35. Then they turned on 
the heat and Barous crashed 
over just seven plays later. Char- 
lie Mellon added the point to 
tie up the contest. 

After UNH was stalled and 
forced to punt, UMass again 
worked the ball down into scop- 
ing position but were stopped on 
the 15. Bill Goodwin attempted 
a field goal from the 25 but he 
was rushed and got away a poor 
kick. This turned into a break, 
however, as the ball rolled dead 
on the Wildcat 1 yard line. The 
Wildcats got mad then, and in 
just 12 plays moved the pigskin 
to the UMass 3. There the time 
ran out in the third quarter. 

On the first play of the final 
stanza the Wildcats pushed it 
over with Trouville scoring on a 
QB sneak. He added the point 
to make it 14-7. Midway through 
the last period the roof fell in 
on the weary Redmen. Spaulding 
culminated a 55 yard drive by 
racing over from the 19 and 
Trouville again added the point. 

The Redmen stalled at mid- 
field after the kickoff and were 
forced to punt. UNH took the 
kick on their own 22 and this 
time took only five plays to cover 
the 78 yards to the promised 
land. Tilley took off on a 50 yard 
romp to spark this drive. Trou- 
ville passed to Schneider for the 
TD from the 20 and once again 
booted the PAT through the up- 
rights. Tfte tilt ended soon after 
with the Redmen taking to the 
air in vain. 

Trouville was the big difference 
as he guided the Wildcats to 
their four score and figured in 
three of them. He also booted all 
four point afters. The general 
consensus was that this lad does

ever>'thing but blow up the foot- 
ball before the game. 

The loss marked the end of 
the most rocky road that the Red- 
men have trod in several years. 
They wound up the campaigrn 
with 2 wins ft loRsen and 1 tie. Al- 
though the roster was studded 
with several mighty stalwarts and 
the reins were in the hands of 
the very capable Coach O'Rourke, 
they just couldn't stay in the win 
column. The reason can be 
summed up in one phrase, "They 
were indispensable but not inde- 
structible." 

The credit for keeping most of 
the team in action as long as 
they were can be given to Vic 
Keedy. Undoubtedly, this was one 
of Vic's busiest seasons in his 
career. 

The depth problem was one of 
the greatest magnitude. That 



was what beat this otherwise 
very classy ball club. Injury 
piled up upon injury, and some 
of the boys were back in battle 
in two weeks where lesser men 
would have sat out the season. 

With the solution to the depth 
problem at hand in the person of 
the fine frosh prospects, the oft 
repeated cry of "Wait till next 
year" rings out loud and clear, 
but unlike the hollow shout of a 
perennial loser, this one has sub- 
stance and fact and determination 
behind it. To this year's club who 
fought magnificently while handi- 
capped by being under-staffed 
with men and over-laden with in- 
juries our most sincere congratu- 
lations for a great showing of 
courage and desire.

Pre-Registration Follows 

Mid-semester report day is Thursday, Nov. 29, the 
registrar's office lias announced. Members of all classes 
should report to their advisers to consult with them regard- 
ing their grades. 

Pre-registration for freshmen for the second semester 
will take place at the same time the mid-semester grades 
are received and must definitely

be completed by Wednesday, 
Dec. 5. Advisers will provide de- 
tailed instructions concerning pre- 
registration. 

Upper-c lass pre-registration 
will take place between Monday, 
Dec. 3 and Friday, Dec. 14, as ar- 
ranged by departmental advisers. 
In order for pre-registration to 
be successful and for registration 
in January to run smoothly, stu- 
dents are encouraged to give 
some thought to their selection of 
courses before they prc-rcgister. 
The choices made at pre-registra- 
tion are, in effect, registration. 

Registrar Warns 

The registrar's office has 
warned that "a system of fines 
lies ahead if the number of peo- 
ple making unwise choices and 
'whim changes* is not soon les- 
sened." 

The office also announced that 
many students, particularly in the 
class of 1959, pre-registered last 
spring in some other department 
than that to which their preregis- 
tration material was sent with- 
out going through the correct 
change of major procedure. 

The material for these students 
will be found again this fall in 
the same department as before 
and will continue to be sent there 
until a change is made in the cor- 
rect manner. 



Seniors^ Frosh

Revelers Plan 
Activities Eve 
For Freshmen 

The first annual Freshmaai Ac-

dent Organizations are planning 
exhibits, displays, and movies to 
introduce and describe their re- 
spective organization, club, or 
society. 

This is the first orientation of 
freshmen in regard to all cam-

of the queen by Miss Judith 
Anderson, Honorary Colonel of 
1955, at the Military Ball on 
Friday night. 

An estimated 500 couples will

Room 4. The Senate will meet 
next Wednesday. 



A petition requesting congressional investigation of 
the alleged faulty distribution of Veterans Training Allow- 
ances from the Boston office of the Veterans Administration 
was signed yesterday by a group of campus veterans. 

Copies of the signed petition will be sent to President 
Eisenhower and Congressman Edward P. Boland, repre- 
sentative from this district. The petition asks them to re- 
quest the Congress "to investigate the faulty distribution 
of the checks for Veterans Educational Benefits to veterans 
served by the Boston office of the Veterans Administration."

UM Coed Takes Third 
Place In Baton Contest 



Falling short of first place by 
1.1 percentage points Miss Con- 
stance Patten, a sophomore chem- 
istry major, took third place in a 
baton twirling contest Sunday 
afternoon at Fairview, Massachu- 
setts. 

Miss Patten, who is a regular 
majorette with the R e d m e n 
Marvhing Band during the foot- 
ball 8 ij a s o n was competing 
against twirlers from all over the 
eastern United States. 

67 Try For Top Places 

The contest, sponsored by the 
Fairview Drum Corps, featured 
so.ne 67 competitors vying for 

\jHKJk o. 

Hailing from Needham, Mass., 
the attractive co-ed has competed 
and taken prizes in many of the

Associations meetings. 

Other Accomplishments 

Among her other accomplish- 
ments while studying at the uni- 
versity Miss Patten has been on 
the Women's Honors List since 
she came here and she is also a 
Naiad. 

Although the contest included 
twirlers from all over the East- 
em U.S. the top three .laces 
were taken by Massachusetts 
girls. 

Miss Noreen Veiga of Lowell 
and Miss Margaret Dupras, also 
from Lowell, took the first two 
places with scei*es of 86.4 and 85.4 
respectively. Miss Patten scored

Hardship For N. E. Vets 

The request arises, the petition 
states, due to the hardship 
caused by the late distribution 
of these checks to veterans at- 
tending colleges in New England. 

The petition, circulated yester- 
day at a meeting attended by 
approximateely 150 veterans, was 
drafted by three ex-servicemen: 
Robert Sinderman, 1958, George 
Messinger, 1957 and Paul Mc- 
Guinness, 1957. 

Vets Unite For Action 

Sinderman, spokesman for the 
committee, said at the meeting 
the protest was necessary to 
straighten out the situation aris- 
ing from the delay in sending 
out the checks. 

The petition, he said, was the 
most effective way of getting ac- 
tion because so few of the cam- 
pus veterans belong to veterans 
organizations and individual pleas 
are likely to be ignored. 

Married Vets Hit Hard 

Hardest hit, according to Mc- 
Guinnests, were married students 
who depend heavily on the checks. 
Of 59 veterans living in Hamp- 
shire and Suffolk Houses he said, 
six received checks this semes- 
ter. 

George Emory, Veterans Coor- 
dinator, said at the meeting the 
VA ottice in Boston informed him 
of the delay of 10,600 checks, in 
the New England area and ad- 
vised him of the dates on which 
veterans could expect checks. 

5000 V«ts Involved 

The schedule, based on the 
date on which the veteran re- 
ceived his enrollment form 
means he said, that 5000 veter- 
ans served by the Boston office 
will not receive an initial check 
until the middle of December. 

Emory said VA forms for ap- 
proximately 900 UMass veterans 
left his office in time for regular 
payment on the 20th of 0<*tober. 
He said the VA office in Boston 
told him the delay was due to 
"reorganization". 

Statement To Cnlh./mn 

A statement to the Collcpian 
yesterday, signed by the three 
mem hers of the committee who 
initiate*! the petition, said the 
protest was an attemjit "to cor- 
re<-t the oveiall situation not just 
the t(Mni)orary malfunctioning

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1956 



CHECKS 

A few veterans on campus have taken 
action to secure an investigation of the delay 
of their monthly checks. They are not 
enough. 

There are a total of nine hundred and 
sixty one veterans on this campus under 
all forms of the G.I. Bill. A meeting was held 
yesterday for the purpose of taking steps 
in this matter. There were about one hun- 
dred fifty veterans in attendance. 

A petition has been drawn up to be sent 
to the Congressional representative and to 
President Eisenhower. Now, although this 
preliminary action was undertaken by a 
few, the petition calls for the signatures of 
many in order to have any effective value. 

Veterans who have received their checks 
should feel an obligation to help out by aid- 
ing those who have not. They can do this 
by signing this petition. 

It may be your check that is delayed 
in the next few months. 



A QUERY 

Why is it that 'Dean* Monday, the day 
designated for the distribution of marks, 
has come and gone, and marks haven't been 
received by most of the students? 

We appreciate the fact that the IBMs 
have been overloaded with the many extra 
course changes. But we would appreciate 
notice of the delay before the appointed day, 
when we trot to our advisors and return 
with no more infoi*mation than we entered 
with.

Faculty Member Suggests 
More Help For Hungary 

Please accept my grateful thanks for your gen- 
erous coverage of the campaign for Hungarian re- 
lief. I should like only to add two comments to 
your fine editorial of November 16. First, the drive 
to aid Hungarian rebels was inspired by students 
and is directed by students. While faculty members 
will gladly help wherever needed, the credit belongs 
and should go to those students whose awareness 
and compassion were aroused by the events in 
Hungary. 

Second, I feel strongly that clothing is by no 
means the only weapon we can use to help these 
people, or any others struggling against totalitarian 
brutality. Might we not also consider some of the 
following ? 

1. Money: a donation matching what most of 
us spend every week in the C-store would feed a 
refugee for the same week. 

2. Uriderstanding: As university people, we all 
have an intellectual obligation to dig beneath the 
headlines and learn exactly what happened and 
why, and most of all to understand what the sub- 
ject peoples desire for themselves in the future. 

3. American policies: Some of us, by letter or 
wire, may wish to encourage our government to 
support United Nations investigation into charges 
of Soviet deportation of young Hungarians, to rush 
money and surplus goods into areas of suffering, 
to liberalize our immigration policies — not only tem- 
porarily in this instance, but permanently — ^in be- 
lated fulfillment of our many promises of welcome 
to refugees from tyranny everywhere. 

4. University action: We may, administration, 
faculty and students, wish to consider the offering 
of tuition, room and board to one or more of the 
Hungarian students among the immigrants to Amer- 
ica in the next few months. Columbia, Yale, Prince- 
ton and the city colleges of New York have already 
done so. 

University people since medieval times have led 
the struggle for human dignity and freedom. We 
at the University of Massachusetts have it in our 
power to renew and sustain that great tradition.

About Judiciary 



To the Editor: 

The combination of graduate 
student criticism and editorial 
comment regarding my feelings 
on Men's Judiciary prompts the 
following observations: 

(1) My criticism' is neither 
blind nor rash. It results from 
conversations with various stu- 
dent and administration leaders, 
and deep personal reflection over 
a period of eighteen months. 

(2) I do not intend to attack 
any individual or organization, 
student or administration. The 
faults lie with the present sys- 



tems of selection and assignment 
of jurisdiction. 

(3) I don't believe any great 
injustice has been done me any- 
where along the line. 

(4) The charges, feelings and 
examples cited in the original 
news story can all be substan- 
tiated, and I am willing to dis- 
cuss them at any time. I prefer, 
rather, to concentrate on pro- 
posed reforms rather than a re- 
view of past mistakes and weak- 
nesses. 

John B. Chaffee, Jr. 



Questions Urged 



Many of us are here in col- 
lege to learn as much as we can. 
This is the major goal of educa- 
tion. 

As I sit through class after 
class, I notice that but few people 
seem to ask the majority of the 
questions. But, do these same few 
always ask the questions that 
you have in mind? Sometimes a 
simple question will clarify a 
whole topic. 

Why aren't these "silly" ques- 
tions asked? Mainly, because we 
fear ridicule for appearinji: ig- 
norant . , . What sort of people 
ridicule the intellectually curious? 
Does a true student do this sort 
of thing? No. The person who 



pokes fun at a curious person is 
unconsciously showing his own 
de.sire to ask questions, . . . 

It is too bad that many of the 
things that we accept as fact are 
fallacious. 

If Plato, Aristotle and Newton 
had never asked questions or 
doubted the validity of that which 
tradition says, where would we 
be today? 

No teacher or student, worthy 
of the titles, will humiliate the 
curious ... so ask questions, even 
the misnamed "silly" ones. . . 

After all, ridiculing of the deep 
desire to learn is out of place on 
a university campus. 

John A. Carpenter, Jr. 



To Mr. Sparkes 

FOR THE WEAKER SEX 



I intend to argue against Mr. 
Sparkes and his slanted ideas on 
marriages which take place in col- 
lege. 

This defense is intended to pro- 
tect the students, mainly the girls, 
against you, Mr. Sparkes, though 
you may be needing a defense 
for yourself and your ideas be- 
fore long. 

In fact, I think that you ought 
to hide yourself from the girls on 
this campus. Then they won't 
have to look at someone who has 
such a low view of them. The fun- 
ny thing, is that your low view 
is completely unjustified. 

This is ignorant. I, myself, have 
a pretty high opinion of the girls 



on this campus. They'll know 
what they are doing when they 
get married. 

Why, Mr. Sparkes do you in- 
sist on laying in front of the girls 
licre tlie thing's tliat Llit-y itlieaJy 
know are wrong? Isn't it because 
you want your name in the paper? 

Girls, pay no attention to that 
letter, which is unnecessary and 
insulting. I wonder if Mr. Sparkes 
thinks of his mother and other 
women he knows dearly, when he 
insults the weaker sex so un- 
justly. He is probably biased

A POINT FOR DEMOCRACY 



To the Editor: 

I for one don't feel, as Mr. 
Sparkes seems to, that the morals 
of our students are bad. 

But, Mr. Sparkes is certainly 
to be commended for compliment- 
ing our university as he so un- 
knowingly does by just writing 
^ his opinions to our campus press. 

Conder.ming things never cures 
the problem, so if Mr. Sparkes 
would channel his praiseworthy 
moral indignation into a battle 
against intolerance, int««lloctual 
dishonesty, or wage a war against 
disrespect for other [cople's 

(KdiUir'a Note: Other IcttrrF 
pertaining to Mr. Spiirkrs Imn' 
hrpv. received, but due ti> spud- 
limitaf ions, wr arc unnhlr to in- 
rlinlt tlirrn nil. 

Many of these lettera w«r9 



rights, (such as co-eds' freedom 
to dress as they wish) then I 
would certainly join Mr. Sparkes. 
I think he is exaggerating 
somewhat as to the magnitude of 
the problems he sees, but all of 
us should certainly be proud that 
we are members of a university 
where anyonr may freely expi'ess 
his views, though we not all be in 
atTdrdance with th«>m. 

We'll try to Ix- nmre tolerant 
with ynu than you ar(> with us.

Gridders Choose 



Gome-Captain 
System For '57 



by TED RAYMOND 

In a surprise move at the football meeting yesterday, 
the squad voted to elect game captains during next year's 
campaign. 

This is the first time that a Redman team has ever 
put the game captain system into effect. Many other schools 
have voted for this system in the past few years, and with 
the inauguration of the method here it would appear that 
this system is here to stay. 

Ingram Honored On All-Team 

Word was received today from the American Chemical 
Society that Dave Ingram has been named to the Chemical 
All-America squad. He joins such noted company as half- 
back Tom Jenkins of Pitt, and linemen Jim Podraza of 
Syracuse and Charlie Rader of Tennessee. 

During his career at UMass, Inch has been a mainstay 
of Charlie O'Rourke's warriors, and Coach O'Rourke has 
rated him over such a performer as Tony Chambers who 
was named a little All- America in 1952. Dave has received 
several offers to try out for professional teams and con- 
fesses that he is interested and may give pro ball a whirl 
next year. 



PISTOL TEAM 

The first practice for the 
Redmen pistol team will be held 
tomorrow at 7 p.m. in the cage. 

Anyone who may be interest- 
ed in trying out for the squad 
is invited to attend.

YanCon Football Final 



Two new YanCon scoring re- 
cords were established by the Uni- 
versity of Connecticut's Bean Pot 
Champions in 1956, as well as a 
team defensive mark for the six 
New England State Universities. 

In scoring 135 points in four 
conference games, despite a score- 
less tie with New Hampshire, 
the UConns broke the old rec- 
ord of 120 points, scored by the 
UNH Wildcats in sweeping four 
conference games in 1954. They 
broke the single game scoring 
figure when they rolled over 
MASS 71-6. The old single game 
scoring mark was set by UNH 
back in '51 when they tallied 54 
against Vermont. That figure 
was equalled last season by 
Mass, against the same oppon- 
ent. 

The existing record for defen- 
sive play was 104.2 yds. per 
game, established by Rhode Is- 
land's championship eleven of '55. 
Conn held its four opponents this 
season to an average of 133.33 
yds. 

UConn led the league in rush- 
ing, total offense and total de- 
fense. UMass nosed out UNH 
for aerial honors, while the Wild- 
cats from Durham had the best 
punting average. 

No individual records were 
broken in '56. UConn's great 
halfback Lenny King led the con- 
ference in scoring with 412 
yards. Maine's towering end, 
Thurlow Cooper, was tops in pass 



receiving. But the most exciting 
new statistical personality was 
UNH's sophomore quarterback 
Bobby Trouville, who led the 
league in total offense, passing 
and punting. 

Connecticut's UConns won the 
Bean Pot outright for the first 
time in ten years of conference 
play, nosing out Maine 13-7 in 
the key game. They were tied 
with New Hampshire, but crushed 
UMass 71-6 and Rhode Island 
51-6. Rhody's defending champ- 
ions dropped from first to last 
place in a sudden turn of the 
tide. 

New Hampshire, five times 
winner of the Bean Pot, could 
do no better than third place, but 
the scoreless tie with UConn 
marked the third time in five 
years the Wildcats have failed 
to win the title, that they have 
tied the ultimate champion. It 
happened when they tied Maine 
in 1951, when they tied Rhode 
Island in 1955, and again this 
season. 

Attendance around the con- 
ference was up an estimated 20 
per cent over 1955, the top fig- 
ure being 12,700 who saw the 
Maine-Connecticut game at 
Storrs. 

It all proved to be another ex- 
citing year for the teams in the 
Yankee Conference, with a 
brighter outlook for much better 
scores in future games among 
the New England Universities.

Committee On Discrimination Recommends Withdrawal 
Of Local Sigma Kappa Chapter From National Society 

U.S. Students Support 
Hungarian Counterpart 



Committee Heads Chosen 
At Senior Class Meeting 



American students are showing 
a tremendous response in coming 
to tiie aid of Hungarian student 
refugees now in Austria. 

Contributions have been an- 
nounced by schools in all parts 
of the United States. Most of the 
money has been raised in spon- 
taneous rallies and demonstra- 
tions called by the university 
students in reaction to the trag- 
ic events that befell Hungary 
during the past three weeks. 

Wihner J. Kitchen, executive 
secretary of the World Univer- 
sity Service, has made the fol- 
lowing statement: "The recogni- 
tion that the Hungarian revolt 
began with student demonstra- 
tions apparently struck a pro- 
found chord with the American 
student body." 

$10,000 Raised Already 

This was based on large stu- 
dent rallies and demonstrations 
at Yale University, Hunter Col- 
lege, Stanford, and the Califor- 
nia Institute of Technology, 
among many others, which have 
already raised more than $10,000. 

The students of the university 
can help by contributing clothes 
for which they no longer have 



any use. They may leave them in 
the box set up for that purpose 
in the C- store. 

"Please help — this is one sit- 
uation where a little really means 
a lot," a committee spokesman 
urged yesterday. 



N. E. Union 
Groups Meet 

The new Student Union will be 
represented at a meeting at 
Brown University today, Satur- 
day and Sunday, Student Union 
Director Scott has stated. 

This will be a regional meet- 
ing of the Association of College 
Unions for Region One which 
embraces all the New England 
states. 

Scott said that he ami the stu- 
dent delegates will be meeting 
with delegates fi-oni other New 
England schools to discuss union 
planning. 

University representatives at 
the meeting will be Robert Gon- 
sor, Lawrence Parrish, and Di- 
rector Scott. 



J. 

At the senior class meeting at 
Goessman yesterday, chairmen 
for the senior activities commit- 
tees were chosen. 

President William Mahoney 
opened the meeting with a dis- 
cussion of the proposed Univer- 
sity Night at the Boston Pops. 
The Boston Alumni Club plans 
this special night for both alum- 
ni and undcrgrads of UMass for 
some nig'ht in April. 

They plan to reserve the floor 
of Symphony Hall and Doric Al- 
viani is planning a program of 
music for the evening. It is also 
hoped that the Chorale will be 
permitted to sing. The money 
from rtie concert will go towards 
scholarships. 

The members of the committees 
chose as their chairmen the fol- 
lowing people: Publicity, James 
Sanders and Sidney Goldberg; 
Senior Mix, Robert August and 
Paul Touher; Commencement, 
Evelyn Murphy and Thomas 
Whalen; Hmiors Convo, Law- 
rence Parrish '^nd .Toann Green;

Salem Witchcraft Sets 
Scene For RD Drama 



by JOHN KOMINSKI 



The Crucible is based on his- 
torical facts of Salem witchcraft. 
Arthur Miller, the author, added 
complexity by introducing ad- 
ultery to the play. 

A group of teenage girls in 
the year 1692, bored with their 
existence, get together with Ti- 
tuba, a negro slave known for 
charm and magic, and attempt 
to create the excitement so lack- 
ing in their lives. Circumstances 
foster a rising belief in the ex- 
istence of witches. 

The people of Salem become ob- 
sessed with this belief and sus- 
pect certain c'tizens of witchcraft. 
Many innocent deaths result from 
this superstition. 

Wife Is Accused 

The play is centered around 
John Proctor, a farmer and his 
wife, who is believed to be a 
witch. This is the story of his 
struggle to save his wife's life, 
and to i*estore peace and sanity 
to the community. 

Some of the minor characters 
add much to the tempo and fla- 
vor of thf play. Theodore Crow- 
ley, who plays the part of Gills, 
presents the comic relief to this 
otherwisf tragic story. Crowley 
player! ihv scwi-rman in the pro- 
duction of the Mad Womnn of 
Chaillot, last year. 

lyornn Regolsky plays the part 
of Tituba, the negro slave. At th<. 
end of thf firs* act, a dramtic 
and moving scene is pt(>f<ssional- 



ly interpreted by Miss Regolsky 
and Marilyn Gross. 

John Devine, a freshman, plays 
the part of Rev. Parris in whose 
home the conflict begins. 

The part of Mary Warren is 
played by Eleanor LaBelle. In a 
very taxing role, Miss LaBelle 
brings her emoting to a i)eak in 
the final scene. 

Marcia Zalesky has a bit part, 
but she handles it with profes- 
sional ease. She plays the part 
of a poor old woman of Salem. 

The production will be present- 
ed on Dec. 7 and 8 at 8:15 p.m. 
Tickets may be obtained at the 
box office in Stockbridge Hall.

Resolve Filed 
Forl958 Limit 

Boston, Nov. 28 (AP)— A leg- 
islative committee today filed a 
resolve calling for University of 
Massachusetts trustees to cause 
elimination of discriminatory 
clauses in the charters of soror- 
ities and fraternities at the insti- 
tution by 1958. 

The special committee, headed 
by Sen. Sylvio O. Conte (R-Pitts- 
field), was established by the 
last Legislature to investigate 
expulsion of Sigma Kappa Soror- 
ity at Jackson College of Tufts 
University by the national body 
of the Greek letter society. 

The committee recommended 
the state university chapter of 
Sigma Kappa be "instructed to 
withdraw from its national or- 
ganization, and, if it desires to 
continue to function as a local 
body, to comply with conditions 
set forth by trustees." 

The Collegian was unable to 
contact Senator Conte for fur- 
ther explanation and comment on 
the resolution and recommenda- 
tion. 



Bats Swoop 
In Surprise 
Libe Raid 

Now that freshmen women 
have late permissions, even bats 
go to the libe at night. 

At approximately 8:15 last 
night, a small swarm of the tiny 
black beasts were relea.sed into- 
the large reading room at Good- 
ell. Who released them remains 
a mystery. 

When the presence of the 
swooping bats was detected by 
the large numl)er of students who 
were studying and socializing in 
the main room, two of the weak- 
er sex ran screaming fi-om the 
room. The others, however, not 
bothered by childhood memories 
of Dracula, remained in their 
seats, awe-stricken. 

When the librarians on duty 
noticed the pandemonium break- 
ing loose, they rushed in with 
poles and opened the windows to 
let the flying visitors out. These 
exits were blocked however by 
screens. 

Florence Aubuni, Susan Mar- 
coulie;-, and Joyce Robin.son, the 
librarians, finally eleaie<l the

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1956 



Rushing Ramblings 

The Thanksgiving-Christmas period of 
the first semester is always a busy one. On 
top of all the enjoyable confusion, professors 
delight in giving us lovely presents — exams. 

But to really complicate matters, this is 
the time set aside by Pan-Hellenic and the 
Interfraternity Council for freshman soror- 
ity and fraternity rushing. 

This schedule could be deadly, especially 
for the Frosh. But we wonder in this rapid 
sequence of events if many freshmen stop to 
analyze this question of the Greeks. 

Some are so carried away with the pres- 
tige of sororities and fraternities that they 
consider non-acceptance by these societies as 
a social stigma, and failure to meet the ne- 
cessary scholastic average, a major tragedy 
— not scholastically, but because it presents 
participation in extra-curricular activities. 

Such an attitude is unfortunate. Greek 
societies are good social and recreational 
units in addition to being instruments of 
close association with friends. But they are 
not infallible institutions that render great 
advantages to those they accept. They should 
not be considered the ultimate goal in college 
existence. 

Sororities and fraternities are clubs 
whose membership depends on two things — 
whom they like and who likes them. Anti- 
Greek individuals condemn as mercenary 
the societies' methods of determining mem- 
bership — namely rushing. 

They hold that nothing is as false as 
judging a person's worth by a few scattered 
superficial impressions. Few can disagree. 
But sororities and fraternities do not agree, 
nor do they admit to passing judgment on 
the worth of an individual. Their prime pur- 
pose is to pledge people they like — those 
whom they consider to be social, talented, 
personable assets to their respective groups. 

There are no deep bonds of loyalty in 
Greek societies that would tend to infringe 
upon one's individuality, but membership in 
a house, as in any organization, carries with 
it a certain degree of responsibility. 

Like anything else, the society to which 
you belong is what you make it — and nothing 
else. If you are primarily interested in be- 
longing just for the sake of belonging and 
of doing much taking but little giving, you 
had better give the matter a second thought. 

Sororities and fraternities can be a pleas- 
ant, interesting part of college life, but they 
are not a necessity for undergraduate suc- 
cess. 

But whether or not you are interested in 
Greeks at the moment, rushing is a new and 
different experience of \vhich freshmen are 
urged to take advantage as an opportunity 
to learn something more about the university 
community. 



Secret Meetings 
May Be Banned 

Filed recently in the state house was a 
bill which would require all governmental 
bodies to hold open meetings, except where 
the law now specifies otherwise. The bill 
is sponsored by the N.E. chapter of Sigma 
Delta Chi, national journalistic fraternity. 

Also sponsoring the bill are four repre- 
sentatives — two Republicans and two Dem- 
ocrats. 

Calling for fines of $100 for groups vio- 
lating the open meeting requirement, the 
bill is the latest of several efforts dating 
back a number of years.

Playing hearts, playing hearts. 
All the pretties, all the smarts, 
Playing hearts, playing hearts. 
In the classroom, in the hall,

O intelligents! Beware of

Petitioning Vets Ask More 
Names to Insure Action 

Dear Editor: 

A meeting for all veterans was held Tuesday 
morning, for the purpose of organizing a mass pro- 
test against the faulty distribution of checks for 
Veterans Educational Benefits to those veterans 
served by the Boston office of the VA. Petitions 
have been signed which are addressed to the Presi- 
dent of the United States and to Congressman Ed- 
ward P. Boland asking them to obtain Congressional 
action in this matter. The more signatures we have 
on these petitions, the more weight they will carry. 
If, for any i^ason, some veterans were unable to 
attend the meeting, and would like to join in this 
protest, they may do so before the end of this week 
by dropping over to Apartment D-1, Hampshire 
House, where the petitions will be available. 

Even if you disagree with certain phases of our 
action, please lend your support, as we are trying 
to correct the overall situation, not just the tem- 
porary malfunctioning which brought about this 
action. This is an excellent opporunity for us to 
demonstrate whether or not the veterans on this 
campus have any spirit or any regard for their 
fellow men, 

George Messinger, Paul McGuiness,

Reader Robbins Wants Judi Abolishment 

To the Editor: 

It seems as though the old question of what to do about Judiciary 
is with us again. 

In last Wednesday's Collegian a few words were said about 
strengthening our Men's Judiciary. I would like to go one step fur- 
ther — but in the opposite direction — to propose that both Men's and 
Women's Judiciary be abolished entirely. 

I wonder about the qualifications of the Five who are in a posi- 
tion to recommend that this or that student be suspended, fined, ac- 
quitted, etc. It seems to me that anyone holding the power to affect 
the future of an erring student should have a solid background in the 
handling of disciplinary cases. A campus, or Senate, popularity con- 
test is certainly no indication that the winner is qualified to sit in 
judgment of his fellow students. 

Secondly, secret trials, unless requested by the defendant, are 
suggestive of the infamous Salem type of justice which was stopped 
three hundred years ago. Do we want it said that antiquated cus- 
toms still prevail in our univer- 
sity? 



I am not questioning the integ- 
rity of the Judiciary Board mem- 
bers, but I do question their cap- 
abilities in judging others. When 
it comes to the point where a per- 
son's future is at stake, experi- 
ence is the best judge. 

Therefore, I suggest that ju- 
diciary affairs be left to the 
Dean's office or in the hands of 
a board made up of faculty mem- 
bers.

SUSPENSEFUL PLAY, THE CRUCIBLE' 
TO BRING WITCH TERROR TO BOWKER 

by EVELYiN COHEN 

The Salem witchcraft days of terror will be re-lived in their lull impact on the 
stage of Bowker Auditorium on Dec. 7-8 when the Roister Doisters present their fall 
production. The Crucible, by Arthur (Death of a Salesman) Miller. 

The play is guaranteed to fill the audience with suspense as the story unfolds. 
The terror of the days is appalling and the play artfully catches the full flavor of those 
times when anyone was fair game for a witch trial. 

A Personal Study 

The central figure is John Proctor, played by James Beattie, who will represent a 
strong, outspoken farmer in Salem. Mr. Miller, the author, illustrates the bravery of 
this historical figure by making the play a study of his personal torments which lead 
him to be called a wizard. 

Abigail Williams, jjortrayed by Marilyn Gross, and her teenage friends, constitute 
a handful of semi-neurotic frustrated teenagers who induce a mass wave of hysteria 
when they begin calling people witches. Because of their accusations, 19 innocent 
I>eople are killed. Among them are Rebecca Nurse, a 72-year-old woman played by 
Carol Bruinsma, and Giles Corey, played by Ted Crowley. 

Gross Leads Neurotic Teenagers 

Jack Gianino plays the deputy governor Danforth and is the judge at the trials. 
He is God's representative on earth to these people. The daughter of English depart- 
ment faculty member Sidney Kaplan of Northampton has joined the RD*S as a freshman 
this year to play the part of a child. Martha Danska, a native of Salem, will appear 
as the clerk of courts. 

Those above mentioned, joined by a fine supporting cast, are to be the main in- 
gredients of the sure success of the Roister Doistcr's presentation. 

Authentic Antique Props 

To complete and make perfect this production are the authentic 17th century props. 
The owners of Wiggins Tavern are owed the thanks 
for the lovely old antiques. 

Back in the days of Salem witchcraft, Increase 
Mather, then president of Harvard College and Cot- 
ton Mather, his son — a minister in Boston — ^were 
important participants in this reign of terror. Re- 
search has revealed that every Mather family can 
be traced back to common relations and so we be- 
lieve that Sally Mather, a mrmbor of the cast and 
thf university prosident, J. I'aul Mather, arc direct 
(losrcndants of those wlio wim'g a part of the story 
which is soon to conic alive with all the f<"r\i>r and 
exrifcomcnt that was felt in those days gone by.

Foley Leads Redmen Basketball Team Little Redmen Show 
In Opener at Northeaster n University High Win Potential 



by JOHN KOMINSKI 

rebounds into the he was selected on the Western 

Mass. College All-star Team last 



Basketball 
spotlight this Saturday, as 
UMass opens the season on the 
road against Northeastern. 

Coach Bobby Curran's boys, 
who last year upset UConn and 
missed the Yankee Conference 
championship by virtue of losing 
to Rhode Island, were virtually 
wiped out by graduation. Gone 
are six seniors who sparked last 
year's squad to a 17-6 record and 
an all-time UMass record for vic- 
tories. Only Captain Jack Foley 
remains from last year's starting 
quintet. 

Foley led the team in scoring 
last year with 392 points on the 
season (118 of which came in 
Conference games) and he can 
easily become the first UMass 
player ever to pass the 1000 
mark. In two years of varsity 
play, Jack has amassed a total of 
688 points. The school record is 
836 for one player in three sea- 
sons. 

Jack has good hands and a fine 
eye on set shots. His percentage 
for foul shots last year was .748, 
while he averaged 17 points per 
game. These are two reasons w^hy 



year. 

Edgar (6*2") and Ackerson 
(6'2") saw limited action last 
year, but both proved to be valu- 
able men. Edgar is particularly 
good on rebounds, and he set up 
many baskets last year. 

In "Bucky" Adamczyk, Curran 
hopes to find the replacement for 
Paul Aho. Adamczyk (6'1") a 
transfer from Brown, will be 
playing foi-ward for the Redmen. 
He has a good eye and a fine set 
shot. 

Ned Lai'kin, highest scorer on 
the freshman team last year, will 
probably work in one of the 
guard slots. Larkin (6'1") scored 
265 points for the Frosh last year. 

Two tall boys, Norm Porter 
(6'7") and Freddie Naedele 
(6'3") should prove to be valuable 
to the Redmen this season. Por- 
ter is the biggest man on the 
team, and last year he recovered 
198 rebounds. Naedele was sec- 
ond highest scorer for the Frosh 
last year, and had a .793 average 
for foul shots. 

In reserve. Coach Curran also 
has Skip Duprey (5'11"), Paul 



KoUios (5'11"), Mickey McLaugh- 
lin (6'1"), Gig Morin (6'1"). 
Ken Alman (61"), and Steve 
Dolby (6'). All are capable of 
filling in when required. 

— REBOUNDS — 

Coach Curran has praised his 
team's work thus far, but doesn't 
intend, as yet, to commit himself. 
He did have this to say: 

The team has a lot of spirit 
and a lot of "ginger," but there 
is still room for improvement. 
My only worry right now is how 
little game experience some of 
the sophomores (Larkin, Porter, 
Naedele, Adamczyk, McLaughlin, 
and Dolby) have. Potentially, we 
have a great team, but we still 
have a long way to go and a lot 
of work to do before we can 
hope to match last season's squad. 

When I say that some of the 
sophomores lack game experience, 
I mean that I am not sure just 
how they are going to respond 
under varsity conditions and stiff- 
er competition. By the middle of 
the season, we should get some 
idea on how well they are going 
to play together — we may even 
get that answer Saturday night. 

Two boys that we are going to 



by STEVE NEEDEL 

The freshmen basketball team opens its season at Northeastern 
tomorrow night. 

The Little Redmen have good potential, but as yet are not well 
organized and might have some trouble in their early skirmishes. 

Jolin Lynch (6-6) is the tallest man on the starting quintet, and 
together with his Winchester High teammate, Mark Apsey (6-2) and 

Phil Athanas (6-1) of Cambridge 



miss this season are Thompson 
and Koczela. We may have 
Thompson back by the end of the 
schedule, but it is doubtful wheth- 
er or not he will be able to go full 
speed. (Dick Thompson broke his 
ankle this ^t summer, and Joe 
Koczela was stricken with tuber- 
culosis during the summer.) 

In a scrimmage with Assump- 
tion College the other night, the 
Redmen looked good, but showed 
that there was still room for im- 
provement before the season's 
opener with Northeastern this 
coming Saturday. Coach Curran 
said that he couldn't tell too much 
by the scrimmage, but noted that, 
with a little more work, the high 
potential of this year's quintet 
may prove its value. The final 
score of the scrimmage, the time 
of which was a little longer than 
an actual game, was UMass — 98, 
Assumption College — 79.

Latin and Worcester Academy 
will combine to give the Frosh 
a pretty formidable front court 
unit. 

Leo LeBlanc (5-10) of Wal- 
tham is a shifty playmaker with 
good speed and plenty of scoring 
potential. He and 6-1 Bob Ei- 
chom, southpaw sharpshooter 
from Adams will team together 
in the backcourt. 

Backing up these five will be 
several other men with outstand- 
ing records in the past. Bob 
Hatch (5-10) from Brighton is 
a fine ball handler and for two 
years was a member of the Bos- 
ton District League All-Stars. 
Dick Green (6-0) was a star for 
Scituate High and last year led 
Thayer Academy in scoring. Six- 
footer Gary Cross from Framing- 
ham was chosen Most Valuable 
Player in the Bay State league 
last season. Tall, lanky Dave 
MacKenzie of Braintree and Ger- 
ry Glynn (6-2) from Coyle High 
of Taunton should give the frosh 
additional strength off the 
boards. 

Fran Gaudette is only five- 
five, but he makes up for his 
lack of quantity with a lot of 
quality. Gaudette, from Prouty 
of Spencer could see a lot of 
action this season. 

Rounding out the squad are: 
Kenny Martin, Jim Davies, Carl 
Mayes, Art Mahoney, John Hay, 
Al Sprague, Kent Harris, Mike 
Young, and Jack Knight.

Foreign Jobs Available 
To American Students 



THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30, 1956 



American students of engin- 
eering, science, architecture, 
agriculture and commerce may 
apply for foreign on-the-job 
training during the 1957 summer, 
according to an announcement 
made by the U.S. Committee for 
lAETSE, the International As- 
sociation for the Exchange of 
Students for Technical E.xperi- 
ence. 

lAESTE was organized in 
1948 by universities and indus- 
tries of nine countries in Wes- 
tern Europe. Its aims are to 
train advanced students o f 
science and technology in the 
theories and techniques of other 
nations, and to build a founda- 
tion for international under- 
standing and good will among 
potential leaders of science and 
industry. 

Candidates must be endorsed 
by officials of their schools. In 
addition, each applicant must 
have completed his third year of 
engineering or scientific study, 
must have had practical experi- 
ence in this country, and must 
be able to pay for his interna- 
tional travel. Applicants may in- 
dicate their choice of country 
from among the 22 lAESTE 
members as well as their particu- 
lar field of specialization. 

The deadline for receipt of ap- 
plications is December 28, 1956. 
A pamphlet describing the pro- 
gram is available from the Insti- 
tute of International Education, 
1 East 67th Street, Now York 
21, New York. 



THIS IS NEWS? 

AP — Every college worthy of 
its football stadium has a pub- 
licity office — or news bureau, to 
use the Ivy League term — and 
the story told by Yale News Bur- 
eau Director Steve Kezerian il- 
lustrates why. 

Back in 1898 Yale Pres. Tim- 
othy Dwight hiked several blocks 
to a New Haven newspaper of- 
fice, huffed and puffed up two 
flights of stairs to drop this nug- 
get for the personal columns: 

'"I came down to give you a 
little piece of news. I have just 
resigned as president of Yale 
University. I thought you might 
like to put it in the paper." 

With that, he was gone. But 
he came back moments later to 
make his position clear. 

"If there is anything to pay 
for this service," he said, "please 
let me know." 



UM Gets 
Grant For 
New Bldg. 

A federal grant of $250,000 
has been approved for the con- 
struction of a new public health 
building on the university cam- 
pus. 

The grant comes from the 
Hill-Burton Funds appropriated 
by Congress for public health fa- 
cilities. 

Plans for the building have 
been designed already and bid- 
ding for the contract will prob- 
ably begin on December seventh,

The building will be part of 
the new science center being 
planned at the university. 

The public health department 
on the campus is a unit which 
cooperates with the university as 
well as being part of the state 
department of public health. 



Every Saturday afternoon 
groups of students and faculty 
meet in the Guild's work loft ini 
Stoc-kbridge to construct the 
many sets required in the 1957 
show. This year, for the second 
time, the Guild is making some

New" Rso^ Heal Audio-Visual Officials Deny 

They Seek Power At WMUA 



by RICHARD HERMAN 

Eliot Allen, an associate professor of English, con- 
firmed a report yesterday that he had been named new 
chairman of the Recognized Student Organizations com- 
mittee. 

Allen promptly indicated he 
thought RSO should be a non- 
sroverninf? board, and promised 
that the committee will not 
"tread on the toes" of the new 
Student Union Governing Board. 



RepresentativeOpposes 
Recommended SK Ban 



He is himself a member of the 
SUGBoard. 

Allen replaces Dean of Men 
Robert Hopkins, who resigned 
last month because he found the 
job too great a burden on his 
time. 

Hopkins had used the board as 
a control force over student or- 
ganizations during his tenure; in 
December, 1954, he suspended the 
Quarterly for 73 days for its al- 
leged publication of obscene sto- 
ries. 

But Allen declared yesterday 
that RSO is an advisory com- 
mittee originally designed to 
study student membership in ex- 
tra-curricular activities, and he 
said he intended to continue that 
policy. 

The committee is not a "bat- 
tlefield of contention" for the 
clash of ptudent and faculty opin- 
ion, Allen said, but an organiza- 
tion which scrutinizes, suggests 
and approves plans for other 
student groups. 

Also president of the Faculty 
Club, Allen holds a Ph.D. from 
Princeton. He joined the UM 
staff in 1949. 



by RICHARD MILLER 

Textn of the majority and min- 
ority committee reports may be 
found on page 4. 

Rep. John F. Dolan, one of the 
five-man State House committee 
that investigated the possibility 
of discrimination existing in Sig- 
ma Kappa and other national fra- 
tei-nities, has filed a minority re- 
port calling for a "calmer solu- 
tion" than legislative action. 

The majority report of the 
committee signed by every mem- 
ber of the committee but Dolan, 
recommends that UMass Sigma 
Kappa be instructed to withdraw 
from the national organization 
and proposes a 1958 deadline for 
the elimination of all discrimina- 
tory clauses here. 

Bias Not Problem Here 

Dolan said he felt that discrim- 
ination is not a serious problem 
in Massachusetts and that the 
local Greek chapters are, in most 
cases, not guilty of discrimina- 
tion. 

The withdrawal of the north- 
em chapters of a national frater- 
nity serves only to weaken the 
fight against bias within the na- 
tional framework, Dolan said 
yesterday. 



"I sometimes think that the 
legislature has too much control 
over the university," he said, and 
expressed hope that any action 
on the bias issue come from the 
UM edministration rather than 
the legislature. 

Good Chance of Passage 

Dolan said that the recommend- 
ations proposed in the majority 
report probably have a "fairly 
good chance" of being passed by 
the legislature which reconvenes 
on the first Wednesday in Janu- 
ary. 

The chances that the majority 
report will be accepted may de- 
pend, he said, on what action the 
students and administration take 
in the meantime, as well as pub- 
lic reaction to the resolution. 

Dolan's minority report sug- 
gests that the Massachusetts 
Commission Against Discrimina- 
titm would be the agency to rec- 
ommend legislative action if such 
were necessary. 

Rep. Philip Whitmore, who is 
on the 15M Board of Trustees, 
said yesterday that he would ex- 
pect that people from the univer- 
sity will be invited to Boston 
when the resolution comes up in 
th*» Ipcisljiture.

spokesman for the veterans com- 
mittee gathering names for the 
petition to be sent to President 
Eisenhower and delivered in per- 
son to the congre: man, said 
yesterday that Boland's return 
from the West Coast has been 
delayed for a week to 10 days. 
More Time For Names 

That will gi.e the committee 
extra time to add the names of 
campus veterans to the petition 
which calls for a congressional 
investigation of the slowed check 
delivery. 

Sindermann declared the veter- 
ans' response to the bid for signa- 
tures has been "very good.'' 

He declined to report the num- 
ber of names garnered by yester- 
day afternoon. There arc 961 
veterans among th*- stiulfnt body, 
but not all of tin m lti t t duca- 
tiiinal benefit checks. 

Only one veteran at a mass 
meeting held last Tuesday op- 
posed the petition, i^imlii maim 
said, and only a "vrry few have 
refused to sign" in the campus 
campaign. 

No Accusation 

Sinilormann said he was not 



casting blame for the delay on 
anyone. He also said no admin- 
istrative official here was opposed 
to the veterans' petition. All 
nembers of the administration 
who have been contacted have 
been cooperative, he claimed. 

Members of the committee will 
accept names for the petition the 
rest of this week: from 11 a.m. 
to 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the 
Comm.ons Snack Bar, from 11 
a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday in 
Mem Hall, and from 1 to 5 p.m. 
on Wednesday in the C-Store. 

Petitions also will be available 
in Apartment D-1 of Hampshire 
Hnusc and Room 215 of Green- 
jiigh House during the week. 



WMUA 
Divided 

Kxrcrpt^ fram President Math- 
er'!* jutiiry titntem^Tit of 105/, on 
control of WMUA may he found 
on page 4. 

Since 19.74 the amount of fac- 
ulty control of WMUA has wor- 
ried student members of the sta- 
tion. 

In the fall of '.'>4, Professor 
Walter Smith informed Joseph 
Larson, then chainnan of the 
Policy Board and now a graduate 
student here, that a faculty 
g!"oup consisting of Professors 
Anthony Zaitz, Frank Rand and 
Arthur Nicdick had approached 
Dean George Marston of the en- 
gineering school to make anange- 
ments for the school to maintain 
the bix>adcast equipment in the 
new stu<lios. 

If such a ]>ropnsal were made 
efTective, the WMUA I'olicy 
Board, which consists f)f .-jix stu- 



Control 
In

dents and six faculty members, 
would have had little control over 
the use of the equipment, and 
ultimately the station. 

At this time President Mather 
told Larson that the new studios 
were facilities to be used jointly 
by curricular and extra-curricu- 
lar activities, and therefore the 
use of the studios would be de- 
cided by the joint student-faculty 
Policy Board. 

In a later statement he made 
it plain that broad policies relat- 
ing to any radio broadcasting, 
curricular or extra-curricular, 
are a function of the Audio- 
Visual Center, which consists 
solely of 10 faculty members. 

However, Mather said students 
control extra-curricular activities 
through the Policy Board, in 
which only tho students vote. The 
Policy Bonn! is ultimately rc-

Students Had 
Said Struggle 
Was Nearing 

Officials of the Audio Vis- 
ual Center denied la.st night 
the Center was angling to 
take control of programming 

at WMUA. 

[Student leaders of the 
WMUA staff had been dis- 
turbed during the past week 
that such a move was afoot. 
Charles Wissenbach, station 
manager last year and now 
working in Worcester County, 
made a rush trip to UM in 
midweek to confer on the ru- 
mor with graduate student Jos- 
eph Larson, another former 
station manager.] 
Raymond Wyman, professor of 
education and director of the 
Audio Visual Center, said last 
night the center's committee 
wished to determine the contents 
of the station's student-controlled 
programming, and if necessary, 
make suggestions. 

No Censorship 
He disclaimed any censorship 
functions for A-V committee. 

Professor Arthur Niedick, 
chairman of the Audio-Visual 
Aids committee, said he felt 
there is no truth in the rumor 
that domination was being sought 
by the committee. 

But Niedick said his committee 
feels responsible for WMUA to 
a certain degree. 

Control at the station, housed 
in state-owned Engineering Build- 
ing, is tested in the WMUA pol- 
iry board, whose voting member- 
ship is entirely undergraduate. 
Six faculty members of a sub- 
conamittee on Radio Policy may 
advise. 

Mather Decision In '54 
President Mather settled a 1954 
struggle for control over WMUA 
equipment by ruling that the 
completely student policy board 
"will determine program and sta- 
tion policies" for extra curricular 
air time. 

Mather declared the policy 
board "ultimately responsible" to 
the Committee on Recognized 
Student Organizations, but point- 
ed out in a two-page memoran- 
dum that "in the last instance" 
administration of the station was 
the responsibility of the univer- 
sity, since facilities had been paid 
for out of tax monies. 

Operating costs for student ac- 
tivities at WMU.\ are tovered by 
an annual student senate appro- 
priation.

EDITORIALS 

The threat to WMUA of losing its con- 
trol of extracurricular radio broadcasting 
appears, in the light of recent administration 
and faculty statements, not to have been a 
very real one. However, the fear among the 
station's student personnel that this would 
happen is not altogether an unreasonable 
one, for WMUA is in a peculiar relation to 
the school and to the state. 

Housed and equipped with state funds, 
the station operates its shiny new facilities 
with no claim to ownership, and therefore, 
with little claim to autonomous rights in the 
direction of programming and the use of air 
time. Yet, clearly, the radio station is an 
important vehicle for student expression as 
well as a laboratory for curricular study in 
radio, and any undue limitations on its free- 
dom as a student activity might be seen as 
a curtailment of the right of such expression. 

What are the rights of the students who 
represent the extra-curricular function of 
WMUA? This week that question has been 
partly answered by President Mather's 1954 
policy statement which asserts fairly defin- 
itely the autonomy of the student Station 
Management Board in controlling the extra- 
curricular Cafter 4 p.m.) functioning of the 
station. 

This policy statement should continue to 
■be regarded as a safeguard against interfer- 
ence by any outside group with the rights of 
students to direct their own extracurricular 
broadcasting as an independent activity, sub- 
ject to the regulations applicable to other 
student organizations. Otherwise, if the fact 
of state ownership of facilities is to be in- 
terpreted to mean that the students operate 
the station only at the pleasure of the uni- 
versity with no guarantees that this priv- 
ilege may not be limited, controlled, or taken 
away arbitrarily at any time, then students 
should be excluded from any participation 
in station activity whatever. 



Congratulations go to new RSO chairman Eliot 
Allen for his appointment and for his announced 
intention to dire<-t RSO as a non-governing ad- 
visory board. 

The announteiiHiit of the appointment of a new 
RSO chief provides an opportunity for a special 
appeal to the organizations committee to increase 
its public relations role. As the group that super- 
vises all student extracurricular activities, the RSO 
committee is an important iwtential source of in- 
formation signrficau'. t) ftuf'ents Tn the past, RSO 
has frequently seemed unaware of its public rela- 
tions function, and has seemed to follow the lead 
of other divisions of the administration in handling 
student public information badly or not at all. But 
unlike the rest of the administration, RSO has a 
special obligation to enlighten students about its 
activities, since its function concerns them directly 
through their organizations. 

Mr. Allen will be making a significant contri- 
bution to administration-student relations if he will 
try, in his new position, to keep students informed, 
through the Collegian and other campus commimi- 
cations media, of news concerning them and tfheir 
organizations. 



A Vote For Fairness 

The freshman class will choose its class 
leadei's, and a junior-at-large senate scat will 
be filled in the Tuesday election. The cen- 
tralized voting procedure, still considered 
by Senate loadrrs to be the fairest and most 
efficient method of electing officials, will be 
followed, and again this method, as well as 
the candidates, will bo on trial. Only a large 
p(M-(riitap^ v<)tin>>: turnout in this and sub- 
s<'(iu(^nt elections will make possible the 
further utilization of a stMisihlc voting sys- 
tem that has proM 'I to cut down sharply on

Dear Editor: 

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks 
for your excellent coverage given to our meeting 
and for your editorial endorsement of our action. 
Your reporting of the matter was, by far, the most 
accurate and complete accoimt rendered by the nine 
agencies of communication which have reported the 
matter thus far, including radio and TV.

To the Editor: 

... I propose that the student body of UM 
adopt at least one Hungarian student just as many 
other American colleges and universities — some 
much smaller than our university — have done. 

This student . . . will act as an International 
Diplomat without a Portfolio. He will give many 
of us a better understanding of the world, and we 
will prepare him for his life in the United States. 

... I suggest that a strong student organiza- 
tion such as I.F.C. take up this cause. Many stu- 
dent organizations have some cash in their reserve 
funds that could go a long way in carrying this 
project to completion (e.g. the Collegian).

To the Editor: 

I know that the majority of college girls are 
not promiscuous. I didn't state that they were. I 
merely wrote "some." You'll find that I didn't men- 
tion any particular college or university either . . . 

It is not my opinion that counts. What counts 
is the fact that at long last we have sex and mar- 
riage relationships . . . "out in the open." Not long 
ago, I'd have been hung on "Gallows Hill" for just 
writing about sex to a newspaper. . . 

Did you know that Swedish children start their 
sex education in the first grade? Instruction is com- 
pulsory. Sweden doesn't want her children to grow 
up with sex knowledge that was obtained frx>m lui- 
reliable source?. Why ^h^uld w^f>? 

. . . Are mental institutions a .substitute for sex 
education in the schools and colleges? . . . 

I'm of the opinion that Sweden is tackling her 
sex problems properly and I advocate following her 
example. . .

The Errant Editorialist 

(A great many Univ. of Mass. students u ander about the campus unaware 
that, even over the self-same turf and broken glass which they daily tread, trod 
men who now form our famed, distinguished, influential, vital, etc.. Alumni. 
To alleviate this rampant peripatetic ignorance we herewith initiate this sparkl- 
ing and informative series of ytlumni prufdes.) 

Morey Abthorp Annixter III first came to (then) Mass. State in 
the fall of 1936. His father, Withington Wortley Annixter (Princeton 
'00), a prominent New York button-hole manufacturer, had attempted 
to dissuade young Morey from coming to Mass., and had tried to 
steer him toward his own alma mater. Resourceful yoxmg Morey, 
however, had a quick counter to his elder's pleas; snatching up a 
Mass. catalogue, he searched out a certain page, and in stentorian 
tones quoted a passage to the effect that "Massachusetts State Col- 
lege is located in the geographical center of the state." Old Withing- 
ton, knowing when he was beaten, reluctantly surrendered to the 
force and cogency of the argument, and gave Morey his blessing, 
accompanied by a goodly sum of money. 

Young Morey rapidly became a legend at Mass. State. Finding 
the dormitory space available did not afford sufficient room for his 
effects (he had brought with him from New York a handsome nickle- 
plated jungle-grym, and a gradated series of wooden footbridges), 
nor sufficient scope for the sweep of his personality ("One simply can- 
not fulfill one's self in a 12 by 14 room," were his own words), he 
forthwith rented a wing of the Jeffery Amherst Inn, from which he 
commuted to classes in a racing sulky. 

Though Morey was a bright lad, he did have difficulties with his 
professors, who kept shuttling him from major to major in order to 
avoid having him in their classes. Ordinarily he was tractable enough, 
but he had the nasty habit, whenever he received a C or less at mid- 
term, of slashing the professor smartly across the cheek with his 
riding crop. 

Though in his modesty he would not admit it, Morey was the xm- 
official leader of the celebrated "C-Store Rebellion" in the fall of '41. 
There had been a growing apprehension among C-Store patrons con- 
cerning the wooden coffee-stirrers. Instead of the thin, clean sticks, 
there had newly appeared on the counter a box of somewhat wider 
sticks, strangely stained. Young Morey, ever perceptive, saw through 
the mystery while stirring a cup of half-and-half. Immediately he 
leaped upon his chair and denounced to all the patix>ns "the dastardly 
management, which was trying to cut overhead by the wholesale 
pux'chase of used tongue depressers." A teirible fracas ensued where- 
in an appreciable portion of the C-Store was severely damaged and 
divers patrons sustained lacerations from hurled coffee cups. 



Morey himself was injured in 
the thick of the battle, a soda 
straw being thrust through his 
left ear-drum by a tough in the 
pay of the management. Morey 
somewhat rejoiced at the hapjjen- 
stance, as it rendered him ineli- 
gible for the draft, but he was 
soon bereft of his joy when a 
malign infection set in. It seem? 
that the straw end had a bit of 
strawberry frappe still clinging 
to it; Morey was allergic to 
strawberries, and a .<«evere rash 
broke out in his auditory canal, 
giving rise in turn to certain cer- 
ebral humour.s which, in tho 
spring of '42 proved finally fatal. 
—Dick Bolt 

To the Editor: 

It scorns unfortunate that ... a 
select though fo)-tunately small 
group feel it to be unjust that 
they should wait their turn at 
the end of the Commons I>ining 
Hall line . . . They force an injus- 
tice on the majority who probably 
have equally urgent engagements 
elsew'icre. . . 

College people set the standard 
for the less fortunate contempor- 
aries and also for posterity. This 
seems to some such a little prob- 
lem but is disrespect for others 
really a little thi-ng?

Larkin And Foley Lead 
UMass To 70-57 Win 
Over NU In Opener 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

Sparked by Ned Larkin's 22 points, the UMass basketball team 
slugged out a 70-57 victory over Northeastern University Saturday 
night in their initial game of the season. 

Larkin, making his debut on the varsity, started off fast with 
key baskets that kept the Redmen ahead for most of the game. His 
backcourt partner, Jack Foley, had a better than average night as 
far as points were concerned — Foley added 19 points to the UMass 
cause. However, Foley had an off- 



night as far as his "deadly" set 
shots were concerned. This might 
have been fatal for the Redmen 
if it had not been for Larkin's 
great play; w^hat Foley missed, 
Larkin made up for in sets and 
lay-ups. 

Foley started things rolling by 
giving the Redmen their first 
two points of the night and scor- 
ing six points in six minutes. 
However, fouls hurt the Redmen 
all through the game, and the 
Huskies went to the free-throw 
line 13 times in the first half. 
At one point, Northeastern made 
seven points in a row on foul 
shots. As a result the Redmen 
found themselves behind at the 
end of the first quarter. 

In the second quarter, the 
UMass defense tightened, and 
the boys regained their shooting 
eyes. Paul KoUios scored a few 
key points for the Redmen on 

!l shots, and the combination 
of Larkin and Foley continued 
to work well in the backcourt 
and as playmakers. The half 
ended with UMass leading 36-31. 

Thus far, the teams played 
pretty evenly, but the Redmen 
were granted a few more breaks, 
of which, fortunately, they took 
advantage. Larkin and Kollios 
scored key baskets on field goals 
and foul shots respectively. 

UMass opened the second half 
by piling up a substantial lead 
on shots by "Red" Porter, John 
Edgar, and Don Acker^on. But, 
once again, the Huskies closed 
the game with foul shots. 

As the fourth period opened, 
the Redmen went into a tempo- 
rary slump and everything 
seemed to go wrong; passes went 
astray, rebounds were missed, 
and UMass missed 12 straight 
baskets in a row. But the team's 
great defensive work enabled 
them to hold a slim lead. 

Edgar fouled out with a few 
minutes left in the game, but 
the Redmen continued to lead by 
breaking the slump and pouring 
on the points. Foley added five 
and "Gig" Morin three more to 
cap the UMass scoring and give 
them a 70-57 victory.

Northeastern brought UMass' 
winning streak to nine straight 
games. Last year's squad (17-6) 
finished the season with eight 
straight wins. 

This year's squad is not neces- 
sarily noted for height, but the 
Redmen missed only two jump- 
balls all evening. This is one 
reason why UMass was able to 
keep the Huskies from taking 
the lead on foul shots. 

Speaking of fouls, there were 
46 personal fouls throughout the 
game, 27 of which were against 
the University. 

There were about 400 fans at 
the contest. The partisan North- 
eastern crowd gave Larkin a ris- 
ing ovation when he left the 
game in the fourth quarter. 

One of Coach Curran's main 
worries was solved: how are the 
sophomore's going to respond to 
varsity game conditions? They 
responded! Larkin scored 22 
points, Porter scored 10 and 
looked very good on rebounds, 
and Adamczyk showed the spark 
that could make him into another 
Paul Aho. 

The lead changed hands nine 
times during the first quarter, 
until Kollios put the Redmen 
ahead to stay in the second per- 
iod 30-29. 

The game was played at North- 
eastern's new gymnasium, where 
last year, the Redmen were the 
first team to win a game in that 
f^old house. 



Frosh Win Initial 
Gome 83-74 
Over Jr. Huskies 

by STEVE NEEDEL 

Staving off a late rally, the 
UMass frosh basketball team 
opened its season with an 83-74 
victoi-y over the Northeastern 
University Frosh Saturday night 
in Boston. 

Leo I^Blanc's playmaking, 
John Lynch's rebounding, and 
Bob Eichorn's dead eye shooting 
led the way, as the Frosh jumped 
off to a 41-33 lead at the end of 
the first half. 

The little Redmen started off 
fast in the second half by in- 
creasing their lead on foul jhots 
by Dave MacKenzie and lay-ups 
by Gerry Glynn. At this point, 
Eichorn took over to build up the 
advantage to 66-56, with a jump 
shot and two assists. 

Mike Dvorchek from Spring- 
field Cathedral and Ken Tom- 
plean paced the Junior Huskies 
to 13 straight |)oints in the final 
period, to give them a 69-66 lead 
with five minutes left. 

At this point, the game could 
have gone either way. Fortunate- 
ly for Umass, it went their way. 
Foul shots by Eichorn and a 
field goal by Phil Atanas put 
the Little Redmen back into the 
lead. Mark Apsey and Athanas 
added two more, while baskets 
by Eichorn, Lynch and Glynn 
sewed up the game. 

Eichorn led the UMaS'^ sroiinc 
attack with 20 points. Athanas 
had 13, while Apsey, Lynch, and 
LcBlanc all hit for 12 during 
the course of the evening. Mike 
Dvorchek was the high scorer for 
Northeastei-n with 21 points. 

By winning, the Frosh gave 
full knowledge of their high scor- 
ing potential. This victory should 
give them the push that they 
have been looking for. Coach 
Gladchuk's boys could b«' one 
of the finest frosh teams UMass 
has ever had.

Mellen And Connolly Top 
W. Mass College Eleven; 
Four Others Honored 



Six of Charlie O'Rourke's best 
players were chosen on The 
Springfield Union's All Western 
Massachusetts College Football 
Team last week. 

Two of the first string selec- 
tions by the Union were halfback 
Charlie "Choo-Choo" Mellen and 
Bill "Tinker" Connolly, regular 
uiembers of this year's varsity 
squad. Mellen received top bal- 
loting for the halfback slot, while 
Connolly took a first place setting 
at guard. 

Connolly was converted to a 
guard on defense by O'Roui'ke 
mid-way through the season, and 
the switch paid off for the Red- 
men. Tinker proved to be a stal- 
wart on line-backing and a wall 
of granite in the forward line. 

Mellen continously led the Red- 
men in yardage all through the 
season and came in fourth in the 
Yankee Conference in total yard- 
age and average yards gained in 
conference games. Probably Mel- 
len's best performance of the sea- 
son came in the Northeastern 
game when he raced a punt re- 
turn 85 yards for a touchdown 
and an eventual UMass victory. 

Listed on the Honor Roll by 
the Union were Dave Ingram at 
end, Jim Dolan at guard, Dick 
Wright at halfback, and Tom 
Whelan at quarterback. All four 
were regular starters for the 
Redmen and all men, with the 
exception of Connolly, were sen- 
iors. 

Ingram was also chosen for the 
Chemical Majors All-American 
Football Team earlier in the year. 

This team chosen by the Union 
was termed as the strongest of 



a group of small college playera 
that can be found anywhere in 
the East. 

Six of the players on the first

THE MASSACHUSETTS COLLEGIAN, MONDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1956 



PSA Mostly Prexy Favors Student-Run Station Programming 

Dems, Seeks " 
Counterweighl 



A group of Democrats who are 
reluctant — in this case only — to 
identify their party affiliation, are 
searching for Republicans. But 
not necessarily to convert them. 

The Democrats aie the four of- 
ficers and two of the three gen- 
eral executive board members 
of the reborn Political Science 
Association. 

Adviser Helps Rebirth 

The Association died last year, 
but has been resurrected this fall 
under the careful hands of ad- 
viser George Goodwin, a profes- 
sor of government, and club pres- 
ident Arthur (Jack) Maliuney. 

Mahoney expressed concern last 
night over the limited number of 
Republicans in the club, which is 
supposed to be bi-partisan. The 
only GOP member of the PSA of- 
ficialdom is Edward (Ted) Smith. 

Mahoney revealed the Associ- 
ation had invited Governor-elect 
Foster Furcolo to campus for a 
speech. Furcolo — a Democrat — 
has not answered the invitation 
yet, but Mahoney is hoping. 

Administration Helps 

His hopes have been bolstered 
by news that the administration 
has seconded the invitation vdth a 
formal request for a Furcolo ap- 
pearance here. 

Mahoney claimed a PSA mem- 
bership of 40 to 50. The execu- 
tive council will meet tomorrow 
to set a meeting date, when the 
50-cent dues required for mem- 
bership will be collected. 

Until then, the search for Re- 
publicans continues. 



WMUA... 

(Continued from page 1) 
sponsible to Recognized Student 
Organizations and is therefore 
governed as any other student 
organization. 

The curricular part of WMUA 
is naturally under the control of 
the faculty through tho AVA 
Center. 

Since the station is paid for 
by the state, it must be handled 
through a regularly established 
procedure relative to state prop- 
erty and the university adminis- 
tration. 



Lear . . . 

(Continued from page 1 ) 
winner of a Henry Fellowship 
to Cambridge (England) Univer- 
sity, and is the author of several 
books, including a study of Henry 
IV. 

His talk is one of a series 
sponsored by the English depart- 
ment in conjunction with the re- 
quired sophomore English course 
on Humane I^etters, which an- 
nually scrutinizes Lear.

Excerpts from President Math- 
er's policy statement of December 
21, 195i. on Uie control of WMUA 
follow: 

. . . certain basic relationships 
. . . need revision in terms of the 
establishment of a radio studio 
in the wing of the Engineering 
Building presently under con- 
struction. The studio is to be 
equipped and maintained with 
state funds. 

Trustees Run Tax Funds 

... It is recognized, of course, 
that many state universities op- 
erate radio stations, equipped and 
paid for out of regular appropri- 
ations ... In most instances, the 
administrative policy of such sta- 
tions is determined by a joint 
committee composed of students 
and faculty . . . appointed by the 
president. Under no circumstan- 
ces can it be assumed that a fa- 
cility paid for out of tax funds 
is to be administered by any one 
in the last instance other than the 
administration and the board of 
trustees. 



Certainly the policy relative to 
programming within the extra 
curriculum can be largely devel- 
oped through student recommend- 
ation where student tax support 
in the nature of $2000 allocation 
coming from Student Senate 

funds is spent . . . for the station. 

* * * 

It is recommended by this 
memorandum that the following 
procedures be established for de- 
velo-ping policy and operating the 
new radio studio facility to be 
completed approximately by Sep- 
tember 1955. 

Broad Policies AVA's 

(1) In general, the broad poli- 
cies relating to radio broadcast- 
ing, curricular and extra curric- 
ular, are a function of the al- 
ready-established Audi o-Visual 
Center Committee . . . 

(2) A joint faculty-student 
sub-committee ... to be known 
as the Radio Policy Committee, 
composed of six faculty members 
and six student members is hei-e- 
by established . . . The student 



representation is to be deter- 
mined by a procedure recommend- 
ed to the President through the 
present policy board of WMUA. 

(3) This sub-committee . . . re- 
ports directly to the Audio Visual 
Center Committee which in turn 
reports directly to the Pro- 
vost . . . 

Students Run Own Funds 

(4) The sub-committee . . . will 
determine in co-operation with 
the Scheduling Officer of the Uni- 
versity the scheduling of day- 
time programs as an integral 
part of the curriculum . . . These 
schedules are to be arranged . . . 
in the same manner that facilities 
all over the campus are coopera- 
tively employed . . . for ... in- 
struction and the extra curricu- 
lum. It is understood that any 
funds appropriated by the Stu- 
dent Senate for the extra curric- 
ulum apply solely to that portion 
of scheduled time which is to be 
utilized for student broadcasting 
rather than instructional purpos- 
es. The policy for utilization of 



such funds is primarily to be de- 
termined by ... a Station Man- 
agement Board, with the faculty 
members of the Radio Policy sub- 
committee serving only as advis- 
ers. Any joint Board student rep- 
resentation satisfactory to the 
[station] will be satisfactory . . . 
to the President. The [Station 
Management] Board will deter- 
mine program and station poli- 
cies for . . . student broadcasting. 
This Station Management Board 
is ultimately responsible to the 
Committee on Recognized Stu- 
dent Organizations. 

.Station State Property 

. . . However, it is certain that 
short of a completely student 
supported station operating in 
other facilities, the facility under 
consideration must be handled 
through a regularly established 
procedure relative to state prop- 
erty and the University adminis- 
tration.

Sigma Kappa Group Votes 4-1 To Ask State Resolution 



Four of the five members of 
the Sixrlitl Committn' on Sigma 
Knppd Sorority — Chairmnn Sil- 
vio O. Ctrtite (R-Pittsfield), Sen. 
Jamef! W. Hennigan, Jr., (D- 
Hingfmm) , Rep. Siinnirr Z. Kap- 
Uui {D-Brookline ) and. Rep. 
Thomas C. Wojtkowski (D-Pitts- 
field) — filed tliis report asking 
uniwrt^ily n-i'tioyi against Sigma 
Kappa. 

RESOLUTIONS URGING 

THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 
AT THE UNIVERSITY OF 
MASSACHUSETTS TO TAKE 
SUCH ACTION AS MAY BE 
NECESSARY TO INSURE 
THAT ALL FRATERNITIES 
AND SORORITEES AT SAID 
UNIVERSITY SHALL NOT BAR 
ANY PERSON FROM MEM- 
BERSHIP THEREIN SOLELY 
BECAUSE OF RACE, COLOR 
OR CREED. 

Whereas, A local chapter of the 
Sigma Kappa National Sorority 
has been expelled from said nat- 
ional sorority because it had 
pledged two Negro girls; and 

Whereas, a joint special com- 
mittee of the legislature was es- 
tablished, by order of both bran- 



ches thereof, to determine to 
what extent such discrimination 
was practiced in fraternities and 
sororities at educational institu- 
tions within the Commonwealth, 
and what action should be taken 
against other chapters of Sigma 
Kappa within the Commonwealth; 
and 

Whereas, Student fraternities 
and sororities are an integral 
part of college and university so- 
cial life, are under direct control 
of and exist at the will of the 
college or university; and 

Whereas, The charters of a 
great number of these fraterni- 
ties and sororities exclude stu- 
dents from membership solely be- 
cau.se of race, color or creed, by 
containing certain discriminatory 
clauses; and 

Whereas, In a democratic gov- 
ernment where students are 
taught freedom of opportunity 
and that all men are created free 
and equal and endowed with cer- 
tain (rod-given rights, those 
teachings must be made a reality 
in the lives of its citizens; and 

Whereas, Educational institu- 
tions worthy of the name must 



maintain an atmosphere of free- 
dom from prejudice and bigotry; 
and every effort to that end is 
a direct responsibility of the ad- 
ministration and the board of 
trustees of the educational in- 
stitution; and 

Whereas, The University of 
Massachusetts, owned and oper- 
ated by the citizens of the Com- 
monwealth for the benefit of the 
citizens thereof, must eliminate 
discriminatory actions and poli- 
cies, if the students thereat are 
to be educated pursuant to those 
principles of justice and equal 
ity on which the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts is founded; 
therefore be it 

RESOLVED, That the board of 
trustees of the University of 
Mass. take immediate action that 
all fraternities and sororities at 
said University eliminate from 
their charters any and all clauses 
discriminatory again.st any appli- 
cant for membership therein be- 
cau.se of race, color or creed, and 
to see that said frateniities and 
sororities withdraw from affilia- 
tion with any national society of 
which they are members if the 
charter of said national society 



contains such restrictions as to 
membership, and that they desist 
from any practices designed to 
eliminate or bar from member- 
ship any person solely because 
of race, color or creed; and be it 
further 

RESOLVED, That the Sigma 
Kappa chapter at said University 
of Massachusetts be instructed 
to withdraw from its national or- 
ganization and, if it desires to 
continue to function as a local 
body, to comply with conditions 
set forth by the said board of 
trustees; and be it further 

RESOLVED, That the trustees 
of said University of Massachu- 
setts insert in the annual report 
of the University to the General 
Court for the year nineteen him- 
dred and fifty-eight their activi- 
ties in eliminating said discrim- 
inatory practices and procedures 
from fraternities and sororities 
at the University; and be it 
further 

RESOLVED, That copies of 
these resolutions be transmitted 
forthwith by the Secretary of the 
Commonwealth to the Board of 
Trustees of the Uni'ersity of 
Massachusetts. 



Dolan Says Legislation Will Magnify Bias Legislation 



Rep. John F. Dolan (R-Ip- 
swich), a mprnhpT of the Special 
Committee on Sigma Kapj)a Sor- 
ority, has filed this dissenting re- 
port, which opposes state action. 

As a member of the Recess 
Commission established by Leg- 
islative Order (H. 3285), I am 
in sympathy with much that is 
contained in the Commission's 
Report. However, there are cer- 
tain aspects which I do not and 
cannot, in good conscience, agree 
with nor subscribe to either by 
signature or inferred intent. 
Laws Might Magnify 

Today, the question of all 
forms of possible acts of discrim- 
ination and segregation in all 
phases of our social structure 
and activities is the greatest 
burning i.^sue of our time. Al- 
though i-uch behavior should not 
be condnncil or tolerated, the is- 
su(« must l)e faced and resolved 
in ;ui atmosphere of collective 
codI atul calm Judgement. It is, 
tln'i<>fi)n', regrettal)l(' that such 
an issue is used to advantage by 
iiptii and hiiidcn cncmirs of our 
American way of lif(\ It is even 
niorc rt'grrttaliii' that thusc who

which I- ri'alix u<<^ .-icnilicant 
nor ton i^cnous a problem in our 
r<inimonwcalth. It is alno dcplnr- 

aMr tlia! there arc those who ftir 



various reasons incite these in 
stances into notoriety for gains 
far removed from social pro- 
gress in this particular field. 

It was no specific surprise to 
learn from our brief study that 
in many of our sororities and 
fraternities there exist those ele- 
ments which give impressions 
and .sometimes support positions 
that lean towards discrimination 
and segregation. Yet, it does ap- 
pear quite plainly that in the 
case of our educational institu- 
tions, both public and private, 
that those in positions of trust 
and .responsibility, both school 
officials and students, are more 
than aware of their respective 
problems and are sincerely try- 
ing to correct existing conditions. 

Mention is oftentimes made of 
instituting possible legislation 
again.st these subtle practices. As 
much a.s we deplore these social 
malpractices, I sincerely foel that 
legislation at this time would 
l)e unwisi^ and unwarranti'd for 
the following rea.sons: 

1. All institution.s concerned 
with this prol>!eni an' ,'ittcm|iting 
to corre<t conditions \ohintarily. 

2. I.ejifishition, even at its host, 
would only corri'ct or pos.sibly 
correct c<»niliti(>ns in [niblic sup- 
port I'd schools, and the piiv.ite 
one.s wouhl ;ind could <'ontinue 
with existing faults. 

a. Our public institutions of 
learning should Ik> jx>rmitt-«Hl to 
allow the same .sfx-ial ami .aca- 
di-mic function.s and «!iaractcri- 



stics of colleges and universities 
as exist at px-iva.Le »chtmLs. 

4. The Massachusetts Commis- 
sion Against Discrimination is 
well aware of the problems and 
appears to me as being the duly 
instituted agency to recommend 
to the Legislature without fuss 
or fanfare the possible necessary 
changes required in this field. 

5. Legislation would only skim 
the surface of the problem which 
is a minor one in Massachusetts 
but a more serious one on our 
national scene, especially in the 
South. 

Might Cast Stigma 

6. Legislation, espe<Mally when 
it concerns our fine public sup- 
IKjrted institutions, could tend to 
cast a possible stigma on those 
institutions and upon chapters of 
the Sigma Kappa Sorority local- 
ly which, in most cases, are not 
guilty of practices of discrim- 
ination or segregation. 

7. Legislation would tend to 
pinpoint Ma.ssachus( tt.s as a 
trouble area and one which cnti- 
not corriMt a minor i.ssuo volun- 
tarily wh. n in r.ict our Common- 
\v<'a|tli :, \ . ry lih.'ral in it.s so-

corro. ting these conditions volun- 
tarily, ("ornjiulsiny ait ion often 
causes ilj.-^ far uor.e ;h.ni tho 
ill it profe.s.se.s to correct. 

Thereforts I would i-econunend 
that all sororities and fraterni- 
ties, cr their chapters, th.it have 
ahandiUHMJ or are in the prtH'e.s.n 
of renouncing past practices tend- 



ing towards poor social conditions 
bo praised and encouraged in 
their wise course of voluntary ac- 
tion. Also, that all of our educa- 
tional institutions, private and 
public, be given sufllicient time 
to correct their own problems in 
this field by voluntary action 
without legislation or other State 
interference other than that the 
Massachusetts Commission A- 
gainst Discrimination be permit- 
ted to quietly examine trouble 
areas and make a report with 
possible corrective recommenda- 
tions in their annual report to 
the General Court. 

Great Strides Taken 

In all ages and various times 
of our national and state exis- 
tence and history, there have 
been periods and instances of dis- 
crimination and segregation of 
one form or another. But, since 
our early days, great strides 
have beon made by our society 
by voluntary means. Various ra- 
cial jji-oups at diffeT'ent times 
have .sufTertHi from this ph;ise of 
SfW'ial injustic(\ l)ut, with time 
and e<Iucatii>n, tiic tlno humane

VA Speeds Che cks After Vets Make Plea To Boland 



VOL. LXVI NO. 29 PUBLISHED THKICE WEEKLY 



Winter Carni 
Seeks Union 
Opening Fete 

The Student Union may 
be opened during the second 
weekend of February in con- 
junction with Winter Carni- 
val activities. Michael Cor- 
vin, a general chairman for 
the carni committee, said 
last night he thought there 
was a "good possibility" that 
opening might occur with 
the framework of the snow 
festival. 

The director of the Union, Wil- 
liam Scott, refused last night 
to name the opening date, but he 
scotched rumors that the struc- 
ture would be ready for use 
right after Christmas vacation. 

"No official date," he said, 
"can be set until the conti*actor 
and the architect can see the 
building's completion in sight. It 
is not likely that such a date can 
be set until second semester." 

Scott also rejected the end 
of January for the opening of 
the two-million dollar center 
since that would interfere with 
final examination period, Jan, 
13 to 22. 

He said he hoped that the con- 
tractor and architect might set 
Jan. 15 as the completion date 
to give the school two weeks to 
ready the center for student uee 
at the beginning of second semes- 
ter. 

The dira:tor, just back from 
a regional Union conference at 
Brown University, was skeptical 
that the book store would be 
transferred to the basement of 
the building in time for the great 
book-buying madhouse at the 
start of the semester. 

The planned Union bookstore is 
designed to speed service through 
the installation of a bank of cit»h 
registers and self-service book- 
shelves.

begin at 5 p.m. Wednesday, 
Dec. 19, and conclude on New 
Year's Day so that students 
may return thoroughly drunk 
on Jan. 1 for 8 a.m. classes the

Gillespie Gets 
Editor's Post 
"Temporarily 

The director of the goverament 
research bureau here has been 
named to fill the post of univer- 
sity editor vacated by Robert J. 
McCartney last week, but the new 
appointment is temporary. 

Named to succeed McCartney, 
who has moved to a .similar job 
at the University of Maryland, is 
John Gillespie. Gillespie organ- 
ized the government research pro- 
gram a year ago. 

A graduate of the universities 
of Oklahoma and Texas — he con- 
siders himself a Texan — Gilles- 
pie has directed public relations 
at Oklahoma State College. 

He will keep afternoon hours 
at the News Bureau in South 
College and will continue to di- 
rect the government resrarch 
unit. 

He indicated last niprht he 
might hold the temporary part- 
time post until after the start 
of second semester, but his ap- 
pointment is for an unspecified 
tenure. 

Gillespie teaches a course on 
municipal govenunent. He has 
written a study of the city gov- 
ernment of Austin, Texas. 



WMUA Staffers'Unworried' 
Now About Faculty Control 



fcy SAM KAPLAN 

Arthur Niedeck, chairman of 
the Audio-Visual Council, reas- 
sured the WMUA Station Man- 
agement Board last night that 
the council had no desire to ex- 
ert its will on the station or 
usurp control. Niedeck is a fac- 
ulty member of the Management 
Board. 

Miss Janet Nichols, station 
manager, and chairman of the 
boai-d, declared after the meeting 
the WMUA staff was now "ab- 
solutely unworried" about pos- 
sible threats to student control 
of the station. She said that a 
mood of confidence replaced a 
climate of fear at the station 
after last Friday when she 
learned of President Mather's 
WMUA memorandum of 1954. 

That memorandum guaranteed 
student control of the extra-cur- 
ricular activities at the station 
and made the Management Board 
responsible to the Committee on 
Recognized Student Organiza- 
tions, thus insuring for the station 
as much freedom of operation as 
is normally granted student 
groups on this campus. 

Station members became net- 
tled last week in the face of ru- 
morF»— subsequcnlly denied in the 
Colle(jian by both Niedeck and 
the Audio-Visual Center — that 
the A-V Council would attempt 
to subvert student authority. 

Miss Nichols allowed last night 
that the rumor may have won 



credence because station members 
had e.xpected the Audio-Visual 
Council might rebuke the WMUA 
staff for its programming. 

However, Miss Nichols care- 
fully pointed out, none of the 
six faculty on the Management 
Board brought up the subject 
of programming at last night's 
meeting. She emphasized that the 
meeting was a routine monthly 
session which had not been called 
in response to the once feared as- 
sault on Student power. 

Faculty Satisfied 

There may have been a feeling 
of weak programming, she said, 
but the faculty members seemed 
"perfectly satisfied" at the meet- 
ing. 

The station manager also de- 
clared the Collegian in error for 
reporting Monday that faculty 
members have no vote on the 
Management Board. They do, 
she said, in all cases except fi- 
nancial matters, but the board 
never discusses money problems. 
[The Collegian said Monday: 
"Control at the station . . . 
is vested in the WMUA policy 
board, whose voting member- 
ship is entirely undergraduate. 
Six faculty members , . . may 
advise."] 
Miss Nichols termed the Au- 
dio-Visual Council "a liaison" to 
the station from the president 
of the university, and said, "We 
feel it is up to them to show in- 
terest in what's going on down 
here."

You Too,

When Jonathan Page Lane 
transferred to the university, 
his first act was to look for the 
newspaper office. He could not, 
of course, find it. 

Lane was a junior with three 
semesters left in his academic 
life before he would receive his 
diploma. Eventually he found the 
Collegian and joined the staff 
to write .scintillating columns on 
evei-ything fi*om Deans of Men 
to psychology and Hindu myth- 
ology. 

After a semester on the Col- 
legian he was elected editor, 
meaning he had, once a week, to 
produce a page of normally scin- 
tillating copy. 

Then he graduated, and his 
successor moaned (publicly) that 
he would have to fill Jock Lime's 
"big pair of einpty shoe.s." Which 
may have been a joke, since suc- 
cessor had size twelves. 

The point, of course, is that 
you <lon't have to he a Collegian 
staff member to become an editor 
or write scintillating copy. You 
don't even have to write said 
copy. 

But what you must do is visit

PUBLICATIONS 
MYSTERY .... 

The latest campus jfuessing game con- 
cerns the appearance of the campus publica- 
tions. Where is our humor magazine? Where 
is our literary magazine? Where is Aspecfi 

Aspect will not make an appearance. Its 
material has been absorbed by the Quarterly 
and will be printed therein. 

Ya-Hoo and the Quarterly will be dis- 
tributed within the next week. The delay 
of Ya-Hoo is not another repetition of last 
year's fiasco. Due to the cut in the budget 
during the spring, the editors arranged for 
printing at a low cost this year. The ma- 
terial, admittedly, arrived eight days late at 
the printer's, due to mechanical difficulties. 
The staff was unfamiliar with the new type 
of printing process that was to be employed. 
Thus, the distribution of the magazine was 
delayed. 

The fault lies not with an incompetent 
staff or a slow printer. The staff has worked 
hard, and the second issue, to hit us in Feb- 
ruary, is already well under way. 

The problem of the Qvurterly is an odd 
one. The first issue has eaten up most of the 
allotted budget for ail three issues of the 
year. 

The Quarterly is given twenty-five cents 
per student a semester, and it has an addi- 
tional income from advertising. The aver- 
age length of the past Quarterly seems to be 
27 or 28 pages. Yet, the first issue of the 
year is going to be a 32-page spread. This 
costs money. 

Lorna Regolsky, editor of the literary 
magazine, has stated that unless she is al- 
lotted more money, it will be almost impos- 
sible to produce the other issues. This seems 
to be a gross mishandling of the business of 
the Quarterly. A set budget was given for 
the issues. Why is it impossible to stay with- 
ing that budget by simple limitation of ma- 
teorial and additional pages? 



HELP HUNGARY 

A small group of students, in cooperation 
with a few faculty members, have been 
steadily at work to help relieve the desperate 
situation of the Hungarian rebels. They 
have planned the three-day on-campus drive 
■vrhich will see its kickoff tonight. 

We can all follow through on their efforts 
by responding to the drive for clothing and 
money. Booths will be set up for our con- 
venience. 

If you missed the boat in joining this con- 
mittee, here's the chance to help. They are 
in need of whatever we have to give. Let's 
make it worthwhile. 



Carnival Note 

The Winter Carnival is traditionally 
sponsored by the junior class. It will follow 
the same plan this year. However, this 
doesn't exclude the rest of the university 
from participation on its committees. 

The class of 1958 is extending an invita- 
tion to all interested to join in the planning 
for the carnival. Sophomores and freshmen 
should make an effort to ally themselves with 
this project. The responsibility will soon 
fall on them for the production of this af- 
fair, and previous experience will benefit the 
carnival program in general.

Concert Association 
Adopts New Policies 

Tile university Concert Association is 
expanding its activities to achieve a more 
active and comprehensive student participa- 
tion in the organization. 

To bring about an effective fulfillment of 
this program, the association has of late 
expanded the authority and responsibility 
of its committees. The rights of voting and 
control have also been expanded to all ac- 
tively participating committee members. 

All decisions and actions now taken by 
the Concert Association are achieved 
through co-operative effort. The individual 
members of each committee present their 
ideas to the entire organization for discus- 
sion and action upon them. 

With this expansion of the association, 
ample opportunity exists for undergraduates 
who desire to help bring artists of profes- 
sional accomplishments to this campus. 



Letterwriter Answers Slams On Judiciary 

To the Editor: 

There have been several articles and letters in recent Collegians about our campus judicial system 
which have shown a great deal of misunderstanding, and possibly a complete lack of knowledge concern- 
ing the whole judiciary set-up. I submit this clarifying note in answer to the letter of Lloyd Robbins, in 
the Nov. 30 Collegian. 

Regarding the qualification and selection of the judiciary members, I would state that no concrete 
evidence whatsoever has ever been found to even suggest that these people have not been capable or suc- 
cessful m judging the cases of their fellow students. Moreover, the Dean of Men, who has the right and 
i-esponsibility to over-rule the judiciary decisions if he believes them unjust, has always accepted them. 
His faith in the students' ability to judge has continually been made known, whenever he expresses his 
opinions of the men's and women's judiciary. 

The cry about secret trials is ridiculous. The defendant may bring anyone who would be an import- 
ant witness. Furthermore, if the judiciary affairs were left to the Dean or a board of faculty membei-s, 
I feel sure that all meetings and hearings would be closed and secret to the rest of the campus. 

The members of the board are not the products of a popularity contest. The student-elected repre- 
sentatives decide on those interested who would best be fitted to sit on such a board. Past experience in 

administrating justice, work in various other responsible 

positions, personal habits, strength of character and gener- 
al maturity are all factors which are given great considera- 
tion in this decision. The past performances of judiciary 
have proved that we need no drastic change. 

Let's get the facts straight before attacking an organ- 
ization which has served us well. — John Rosenberg

WW Award To Larkin 
In First Varsity Outing 

This week we are setting a precedent as far as the Well- 
worth Award is concerned — for the first time that we know 
of, the Well worth Award is going to a sophomore for his 
performance in his first varsity game. The WW Award for 
this week goes to Ned Larkin for his outstanding effort 
against Northeastern, which eventually led to a victory 
for UMass. 

Larkin scored 22 points that night for the Redmen, 
and most of them were key baskets that kept the UMass 
cagers from losing their lead over the Huskies. Ned played 
practically the whole game, and when he left in the final 
quarter, he received a rising ovation fiom the partisan 
Northeastern crowd of 400 spectators. 

I^arkin was the highest scorer for the freshmen last 
year — he tallied 265 points during the season, and shows 
possibilities of repeating a similar perfoiTnance this year. 
This year, he is part of the "new look" in the UMass bas- 
ketball team; a starter, upon whom Coach Bobby Curran 
will be counting a lot this winter. 

Larkin, who hails from Belmont, displayed the type 
of fighting spirit that is characteristic of the WW Award, 
when he kept plugging away with key shots to keep his 
team ahead and to help them to victory. 

Foley Destined To Become 
Alltime UMass Hoopstar 

by JOEL WOLFSON 

We don't want to jinx anybody but, barring a broken 
leg or the like, John Foley, captain of this year's Redmen 
hoopsters, can not miss setting his name in the UMass his- 
torical sports annals. John needs only 148 points to break 
Bill Prevey's old mark of 836 points as the All Tim^ Career 
Scoring Leader. Nicknamed Jack, by his many fans, he ap- 
pears headed for this winter's New England All Star Squad. 
Foley scored 296 points in his sophomore year and ran up 
another 392 last season. His jump shot, styled after that 
used by Paul Arizin of the Philadelphia Warriors is some- 
thing to sec. The 6'2" senior will be the anchor man of 

this season's quintet thanks to- 
his experience and natural abil- 
ity under the boards. 

1956 was a historic year for 
Massachusetts basketball as the 
team set an all-time record of 
17 wins and 6 losses. Althaug-h 
graduation took such great play- 
makers as Paul Aho, "Trigger" 
Burke, Dave Bartley, Dick Eid 
and Buddy Frye, Coach Curran 
experts his sophomore studded 
class to perform real well. The 
new faces will make up for any 
lack of experience with its well- 
balanced height, the best seen 
around here in many years. 

Four outstanding prosepcts 
from last year's freshman team 
may make the Class of '59 more 
memorable than any previous to 
it. Ned Larkin, who has a fine 
jump shot and can hook with 
either hand is certain to become 
a leading scorer. 

6'7" Red Porter is the first 
big man at center position that 
Coach Curran has had in five 
years at the helm. 

The third sophomore prospect 
is Fred Naedele who stands at 
6'4", and shines with a one band- 
er from the outside. Bucky Adam- 
czyk, who started on the Brown 
University frosh team two years 
ago, will blossom at guard. 
Fighting for starting roles will 
be two seniors, 6*3" John Edgar, 
and 6'4" Mel Foster. 

The Rodmon made it three cfm- 




JACK FOLEY 



secutive victories over the Hus- 
kies last Saturday night when 
they travelled to Boston to beat 
Northeastern by a score of 70- 
r>7. The Redmen took last year's 
contest 69-45, and hold the series 
edge 11-7. 

The sophomores on the team 
more than fulfilled pre-game 
hopes, and if they maintain their 
power, should have a hand in 
making the UMass Ave tops in 
New England.

The 1956 edition of the Yankee Conference All-Star team was released today, and for the second 
consecutive year UMass failed to place a man on the first team. 

The first team was dominated by UNH and UConn with both outfits placing four men on the squad. 
The other three places weiiL Lo Muiiie and Vermont, with the fox-mer placiiig two and the latter one.

Cagers Seeking Victory 
Against Trinity College 

by JOHN KOMINSKI 

The UMass cagers will be seeking their tenth consecutive victory 
tomorrow night as they travel to Hartford to meet with Trinity Col- 
lege. 

Though the Redmen started rff the season on the right foot by 
beating Northeastern University the other night 70-57, they may 
find some tougher opposition in Hilltoppers from Hartford. 

Trinity is nothing as far as height is concerned, but they have 
some pretty good shooters. The UMass defense will probably be more 
concentrated on stopping shots from the outside than lay-ups or 
jump shots from the bucket. 

Coach Curran has been working mostly on ball handling and 

more efficient passi-ng drills. A 77-; ; ,, ,, — ; — — 

University at Mcdford this com- 
ing Saturday. By the end of this 
weekend. Coach Bobby Curran 
should have a good idea of what 
his tr>ani is poing to bo like. 



lot of plays went down the drain 
the other night as a result of 
bad ball-handling. 

Jack Foley found himself just 
missing quite a few times against 
Northeastern, but this week at 
practices, he doeant seem to miss 
at all. It was probably just a 
case of first game jitters. 

One player who didn't let play- 
ing in his first varsity game 
bother him was Norm "Red" 
Porter. Curran was high in 
praise of his 6'7" center from 
Northfield. Porter scored 10 
points and looked exceptionally 
well in rebounding. 

For all intents and purposes. 
Coach Curran will ^ along with 
the same starting lineup against 
Northeastern : Don Akerson and 
"Bucky" Adaniozyk at the for- 
ward .slots, .lolin Edgar at cen- 
ter, whilf Nfd Larkin and Jack 
Foley again team up in the back- 
court.

Cooper, UConn's speedy half- 
back, Lenny King, and UNH's 
hard-driving guard, Basil Gre- 
gorios as the best in the league. 

Bob Trouville, the sophomore 
sensation from UNH, nosed out 
Ken Parady of Maine by a single 
point for the QB slot on the first 
team. Trouville led the confer- 
ence in total offense, passing, and 
punting. 

Cooper was the only repeater 
from the 1955 All-Conference 
squad. He is a top draft choice of 
the Cleveland Browns this sea- 
son, and is also a likely candi- 
date for little All-America hon- 
ors this year. 

Gregorios proved his potertial 
this year by making the All-Star 
outfit in his first full season of 
play. For the last two seasons 
he was sidelined with injuries lor 
a good part of the campaigns. 

An omen of continuing succe;i8 
for the talent laden UCon-n team 
is the fact that three of their 
four players named to the dreanr.i 
team are only juniors. Two of 
the selections on the first team 
are sophs, Trouville and Ray 
Hostetter of Maine. 

Another very interesting side- 
light that can be likened to the 
story of the "one that got away" 
is that of the 22 men selected 
14 of them are from the Bay 
State, and only four of the 14 
are at UMass. 

The Redmen, along with 
UConn, polled the majority of 
the second team places with both 
schools placing four men to the 
squad. Buzz Allen, Jim Dolan, 
Dave Inerram, and Charlio Mel- 
len were the Redmen named to 
the squad.
